iPhone marking unread mail as being read

I have 3 email accounts set up on my phone, all AT&T / Yahoo accounts.

Mail is constantly getting marked at being read when I have not read the messages. It does not happen to all messages, but about 90% of them.

Sometimes they will show as unread, and when I go to that inbox I can watch them change from unread to read.

This does not happen to my iCloud email and didn't happen to an exchange server account I used to have at work.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix?

I posted about this over in the Macintosh forum and the answer there was that it had to do with the AT&T / Yahoo account, not the phone.

I suggest that you check to see if another computer has that account set up as POP, where the messages are automatically retrieved. That would count as read on another device. If this is the case, the solution is to set it up as IMAP instead or turn off the automatic retrieval every x minutes on the other device.

It is set up on my laptop as POP, but I don't leave the email client open all the time. This will occur even when the laptop is completely off.
