It's not like you're looking through two windows at the same real-time object where changes from one viewpoint are instantly seen from the other. Each computer has a separate download of html and is only as current as the last refresh from that computer.

Also, if you view a message in the Reading Pane, then close the email, it marks the message as unread. Its essentially the same way to do it, but just two different methods.
