    Hi Everyone,

    I have a really frustrating problem with Here's the scenario.

    There's a conversation thread going on in my inbox. It's got 3 messages in it. I have read all 3 messages, and then I leave my desk and go grab lunch. I come back, and go about my business. In the mean time, 2 new messages have shown up in that same thread. I don't notice those messages in the thread though, and I click on another message that's come in individually or to another thread that I wasn't already looking at. In the process of leaving the existing thread, mail has marked those 2 new messages as read and I never see them because I don't notice them coming in. As a result, I frequently miss messages in a discussion simply because Mail doesn't alert me to look at them because it thinks I read them.

    This problem sucks, and is making it hard for me to use program I have used since the original version of OS X. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, does anyone have a solution to this problem?

    What happens if you turn off the discussion thread option (for the sake of experimenting)?

    I haven't tried that yet, but that's a good idea. I will give that a shot. Anyone else experiencing something like this?
