missing mark as read | unread in proxy access

Hello,

some of us have proxy access to the mailboxes of their chiefs. After
update to gw 2014 they are missing the "mark as unread" command in
context menu of the mail.
Clients are affected: 2012, 2014, webmailer

Bug or feature?

Re: missing mark as read | unread in proxy access

Just a thought:

If it is only affecting some and not all users it sounds like a permissions issue.

Check the various permissions for given users that are experiencing the issue against users who aren't experiencing the issue.

Proxy to the affected account then: tools -> Options -> Security -> Proxy Access
Select the affected user and check their rights

As I could investigate:

in general all users with proxy rights to other mailboxes are not able
to change the properties of messages. This happens without any change of
the user in question.
Ergo: it runs in gw2012 and runs not in gw2014

I have been able to duplicate this, and indeed it has to do with rights. If the
proxy user has "write" rights for email, then the "mark as unread" is available.
If the user has only "read" rights for mail, then disappears.

I suspect this is a "new" feature for security, but I will verify.

Also, I had to close the GroupWise client and reopen (as the proxying user)
after making these changes - I suspect they would eventually take effect, but in
order to see the changes quickly, I did close/reopen each time the other user
changed my proxy rights.

Apparently feature - you need "write" rights to toggle this setting.
