Read Unread marks behaviour in notes and outlook

Unread Marks handled in notes per user basis however in Outlook it is valid for the whole "database" level.
For example: A user that is used to work with Outlook and the way Outlook / Exchange handle unread-marks. Meaning: Unread-Marks are not per user (as in default Notes) but are valid for the whole "database".

Meaning: If User A accessing a mailbox reads a message User B who also has access to the same mailbox will also see the message as being read (without User B actually having to read the mail).

However with notes if User A reads an email with any other mail box for he has access and the same email for user B still showing as unread in that mail box.

Please change read unread mark behaviour with notes domino (from per user to Database level) as work in outlook. Thanks

    It is so helpfull if you have an assistant who helps you with all emails where you do not have to take a decision. Outlook is much better in this aspect.

    Conceptually speaking:

    If you have 'read' a document, it does not mean that I have read it.

    >> I would agree that this is working as designed and is OK for most use-cases.

    But in some cases users would prefer a different (Outlook-Style) unread mark handling (on per database level)

    A pitty that this is not being considered :(
