I have only noted one other instance of this question at
but after a significant search I have still found no solution:

I have just moved to Mac, and have set up my aol IMAP account with Mail 3.0 on Leopard. One major gripe is that e-mails are 'marked as read' the second they are selected.

Mozilla Thunderbird has an option to only mark mail as read after 'x' seconds of it being selected, does anyone know of a way to replicate this functionality in Mail? The main cause is when an e-mail is deleted and the next e-mail is instantly selected, marking it as read (even though I want to keep it as 'unread' to read later).

Am I the only one who would find this functinality useful? Hmm..

Many Thanks
