Envelope icon should work as "mark read/unread" button

I have set eM Client not to mark a message read automatically. However I am missing a simple way to mark a message as read/unread. A very straightforward way would be IMHO if the yellow envelope icon would work as a mark read/unread toggle button (just as the red flag directly below does). Thanks for considering this …

Hi, thank you for the suggestion, we’ll surely consider adding this feature to future releases.
However you might find helpful to use shortcuts to quickly mark email as read/unread… use the shortcut ctrl + q / ctrl + u to mark as read/unread … or use your own shortcut, just set it up in Tools > Settings > General > Shortcuts.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the feedback – I know the shortcuts, but I often use the mouse to skip through my mails, so a quicker mouse-only solution would be appreciated … And I keep klicking on the envelope icon again and again, since it seems (at least to me) to be the logical position of the mark read-button.
