Mark as Read option in Mail on iPhone

Do you actually read all of your emails? For most people there are just way too many messages.

Some we might consider junk, although we don’t want to put them in the junk folder, like coupons, sales, or promotions. Others might be receipts or confirmations that we see in the previews, so we don’t have to open and read them. But after a while, all of those unread emails pile up.
