    Mozilla 1.7.3: when I select an email-message in "Inbox", the
    message-preview is shown. Then the message will be marked 'read'
    automatically. How can I setup Mozilla not to mark messages 'read'

    Thanks in advance,

  2. If you want to change a message back to unread, then hit the "m" key.
    This is a toggle between read and unread.

    There might be a different setting, but this will get the job done if
    you set the value high enough.

    Open the browser, type in about:config in the address bar. Find the
    following entries, and change the values:

    mailnews.mark_message_read.delay ~~> TRUE
    mailnews.mark_message_read.delay.interval ~~> Time in Seconds

    Your solution works fine for me.
