in thread IMAP: mark message as unseen

Okay, the PEEK things works... temporarily (it isn't implemented in Net::IMAP::Simple::SSL, but I did it manually). After fetching the messages using the PEEK thing, the web interface shows that the messages are still unread. However, if I wait a few moments without any action, and then re-load the web interface, the messages are marked as Seen.

Any idea what is going on? Thanks a lot!

    Sorry, it was probably my mistake.

    However, the PEEK method doesn't yet work perfectly (I'm trying to figure out why). Is there any alternative?

      I think before I discovered PEEK, I removed the \Seen flag from each message after reading it, but I don't find any code anymore in which I did that and how I did it, sorry.
