Exclamation phone wrongfully marks emails as read

Hello everyone,

I took a look at a few other posts, but they either weren't too similar, or weren't answered either.

When my phone downloads emails (using POP-3 and a German server called "www.gmx.de"), it marks the emails as read on the server. So even if I don't mark them as read on the phone, when they get downloaded on my computer (using thunderbird), they'll appear already read.

Evidence that it's the phone's fault:
When the phone is turned off this doesn't happen, and my emails are shown correctly as unread on my computer, for any emails that I received since it was turned off.

Scope of consequences:
Important messages can and do go unread, which I can't afford.

One solution would be to stop all syncing of the phone with the server, and only use the computer, but that would be a drastic last option. I'd appreciate it if you could come up with something better :-)

I'm hopeful that you'll help me.

Thanks a lot,

Sounds like a challenging problem and not specific to the Infuse. I think if you post in the general forum, you'd get a wider audience that might be able to help.
