This article applies to eM Client 9 BETA.
With the introduction of Avatars in the message list the behavior of marking message as read/unread and assigning a flag has changed.
At first, you see the unread orange dot as usual:
But if you hover, the Flag option shows up instead so you can easily flag the message in one click.
The flagged/unread message then looks like this:
Many cons and pros of having both buttons available and clickable were considered, but in the end, a design decision was reached - the unread dot does not look good when it is not centered with the avatar (and only one icon is shown at the top).
You can also enable the option to "Always show "read" and "Flagged" icons on mouse hover" in Menu > Settings > Mail > Read under the Message List settings.
