Please preserve modified timestamp when reading emails


Recommended Posts

When I open email messages in Outlook, to read, and close again, the modified date is changed.

Microsoft claim not to change these, and that antivirus products such as ESET Antivirus makes the change.

I've found some ESET settings to turn off modifying access date in files (NTFS filesystem) but I can't see any options to stop tampering with any email timestamps.

Please test for me and find out if it's ESET that's making the changes, or not?

I'm not sure if an Outlook plugin can change the timestamp after scanning and modifying an email message. Have you tried disabling scanning of read email?

Hello @Aceleroo,

the new Outlook plugin designed to resolve issues reported is available in BETA, details are available at https://forum.eset.com/topic/31777-new-outlook-plugin-beta/


If possible can you please try how it behaves with it and let us know?

Thank you, Peter
