      I for one never have the preview setting turned on. And that's true no matter what application I'm using for email - and I use five different ones. Turning off this feature or closing your preview pane means that emails don't get marked read automatically.
      This should not be the case for messages being read and then closed so they go back to the Inbox. I'd rather know that I've looked at an email previously rather than having to guess.
      I used Deb's email to make the change back from Never to 2 seconds.
      Gee! Now my read emails that are closed to return to the Inbox show up as read.
      It's an all-or-nothing setting!
      This, like many other "features" will be sent off to Yahoo to consider for changes. I've done this twice before with other "features" and haven't heard back from Yahoo.....and things seem to be getting worse with the application.

      I've noticed the same thing just within the last couple of days.   The setting I think you are referring to is in Mail Options > General where you can set the time for "mark messages as read."  I'd rather not have my messages marked as read when I preview them, only when I actually open them, so I have had this set to "never" assuming this setting was only in reference to messages that were being viewed in the preview pane (this is how it is in other mail programs).  Everything was working as I expected -- messages were never getting marked as read when previewed, no matter how long they appeared in the preview pane, but when I actually opened a message from my inbox, it would be marked as read...  until a couple of days ago.  All of a sudden messages that I actually opened were no longer being marked as read.  I changed the "mark messages as read" setting to 5 seconds (longest possible interval).  Now my opened mail does get marked as read as it should, however messages are also being marked as read when they appear in the preview pane for more than 5 seconds, which I do not want to happen.

      It does appear that something has changed.
