It would be nice for an email filter to be able to mark a msssage as read (or unread) as part of its rules. Why? I get some automated emails for things I already know about, and I want to file them away in a mailbox so I have a record of them, but without manually reading or marking them myself. I can currently make a rule to put a message in a mailbox, but the option to also mark it as read is missing.
Email: mark as read in a filter
