    I like the new gestures that are available for Mail. I've already changed it to swipe left to archive instead of delete. Is it possible to mark messages as read while archiving or do I need to swipe right to mark as read and then swipe left to archive?

    You'll probably have to mark it as read and then archive it. I'm not sure of a way otherwise.

    Where did you find the setting to change that? Cause I looked but didn't see anything resembling the menu on iOS

    Settings > Viewing. The second popup menu, easy to miss.

    I see, thanks. However it only gives me a single option which for me is contrary to my workflow. I can either archive or delete emails instead of choosing archive and delete like I can on my iPhone. Hardly ever mark an e-mail as unread. :/
