How to have deleted Outlook emails marked as read.

Throughout the day, I usually delete emails by hitting the "X" when the popup window shows up for a new email (which they go into my deleted items but they still show up as read). Is there a way in Outlook to set all deleted emails as having the 'read' status? I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you have the reading pane opened on the right side of your email program, I am referring to Outlook, then when you highlight the email, it will open in the reading pane even thou you may have not read it.  This is a default setting.  You should turn off the Reading Pane in the event that the email is malicious and when you open it, you have caused a problem for yourself. 

For Outlook, go to the Menu and View –> Reading Pane and then turn it off.
