Archived emails read on Android still showing up as unread

This is a small issue but it's been bugging me. I use AOSP Email for Android (Motorola Moto X, Android 4.4.4). I like to go through and read and archive emails on my phone. But when I look through my archives on my desktop email program (Thunderbird), the messages I archived using my phone are there, but they are still marked as unread.

I've tried some other Android email programs, but I can't get any to work with my university email, which uses Exchange. I realize that my university email account may complicate things, but is there anything I can do to get it to recognize that the archived emails I have marked as read on my phone are read?

The same thing happens if I use the gmail app on my phone and then check gmail on my computer. I just realised that it's because I have my settings set so that I have to manually sync my emails. So try syncing your emails on your phone and then check on your computer?

If you haven't tried it, you might want to give Nine a shot. It works great with my Exchange email.

I double-checked to make sure that I had syncing enabled, then I tried turning off sync and then on again, but the problem stuck. I just tried Nine and it seems to work!

Thanks for the advice!
