Is it possible to stop messages that VPOP3 downloads from being marked as read?

VPOP3 does not mark messages as read when it downloads them. In fact, the POP3 protocol doesn't have a system available for marking messages as read, so it is impossible for VPOP3 to mark messages as read.

If your ISP's Webmail is showing messages marked as read after VPOP3 has downloaded them, then that is because your ISP's mail server must be marking them as read itself. You need to contact your ISP to see if there is a setting you can change on their server to determine whether POP3 downloaded messages are marked as read in their Webmail system.
