Yahoo Mail Marked as Read On Bold Seconds After Receiving It

Hi! I really hope someone can help me out, please. =)


I have a blackberry bold 9000 and yahoo mail. I use Mac Mail which receives mail from my yahoo account and pops up unread messages on my desktop so i don't have to go online to get my mail.  I've been testing this to make sure I'm not crazy and had a friend send a bunch of test emails to me. Within seconds I received it on my blackberry and after 10 seconds the notifier goes away and it is marked read in my email on my BB. I went to check it on my Yahoo mail account and it was marked read too.If i leave ipen my Yahoo online mail account and watch my BB, as soon as the mail is marked read on my BB, it is immediately marked read on the yahoo online email too- which it is supposed to do. However, i haven't opened these emails and don't know why it's marking them opened.


I don't know what's going on? I changed from GMAIL to YAHOO mail bc GMAIL wouldn't mark messages read in my online account if i had already read them on my BB and now my BB is marking everything i receive as read. I don't know how to fix this. I didn't sign up for BIS though & make a username, I just went through the personal email setup. However i have wireless internet and a data package set up through ATT for my BB. 


Also, I don't know how to sync up Mac Mail to also relay the unread/read status as my online yahoo mail does. Could Mac Mail be interfering in the Yahoo sync with the BB?


I even upgraded my yahoo email to YAHOO PLUS, so it enabled the POP. 


Please help me! anything will be useful!Thank you so much!

Re: Yahoo Mail Marked as Read On Bold Seconds After Receiving It

okay, so i turned off my wireless reconcile as the link suggested in order to get messages delivered on my BB to show up as unread instead of read but now, obviously, my messages won't reconcile between my BB and my yahoo account. So if i read it on yahoo, it won't mark it read on my BB, can i have my cake and eat it too?
