Sarah: Ok, but just commenting that this "read" function alwaysNo. The history of what pages you've visited is kept by your browser.
The problem (now that I see it) on Groups.io is that the URLs in the Message list subject lines are different from those on the message pages themselves. That's either a simple bug for Mark to fix, or a mess - depending on why that difference exists.
Lots of comments from members on this issue.No doubt.
I don't use the web interface to read messages very often, so I hadn't noticed. But I know a lot of beta members do, so I'm surprised there's not more comment on this - but maybe it has been accepted as "broken" for a while now and I've forgotten about the prior discussion.
For what it's worth, Groups.io's login feature "Email me a link to log in" is particularly handy when on a mobile device. No need to remember or carry with you (or try to type) a login password. Just ask for the email and moments later open it and click the link in it. Presto, your device is logged in for 30 days.Your husband's best bet might be to use the View/Reply Online linkSarah: Ok, we'll try this.
That's assuming, of course, that the email address you use for Groups.io is one that you can receive on that mobile device.
