@tophee, I don’t suppose there’s a Discourse feature where reading a post in an email will flag it as ‘read’ on the forum, is there? (Assuming the user isn’t blocking external image/code references in their email app, that is.)
Off topic but, I’m still waiting for the day when mail protocols get smart enough to go the other way around “hey, you read this information on the web page so I’m going to delete this email notifiying you about it”.
Or even better support for:
- “hey, you just got an email advertising junk you don’t care about that says to delete any unread messages about the same thing that are older so I think I will”
- “oh, look - this unread email is about a coupon that has expired - I think I’ll delete it for you”
But that’s just me dreaming out of the (email) box.
