Mail will not mark messages as read after being opened... the blue dot will NOT go away, no matter how many times I open the e-mail.

It's a simple pop account. I AM able to mark messages read with the message menu item (mark as read.) I also have nothing synced with it, no iPhone, no IMAP accounts, no .mac account, nothing.

But this is a real pain to have to do manually, when it used to happen automatically upon clicking the e-mail, it opening in a window to read, and then closing it.

All was working fine up until the 10.5.7 update. I hoped the 10.5.8 update would fix the problem, but no change. Everything else is working perfectly (I do the permissions repair/disk verify procedure before and after each update.)

Can't seem to find anyone else with this problem in here either, through search or just going through hundreds of messages.

IMac 24" 2.33, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
