- NVDA recent snapshots not reading message status in Outlook

My apologies for the misunderstanding, you are quite correct, whether a message has been replied to or forwarded is not reported. This is a known issue. We have looked into this earlier this year, and it appears we need a fix from Microsoft to expose the information correctly. See our issue here if you are interested in further details (or subscribe to it to be notified of updates): https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6911

I realise I wasn't clear enough. NVDA does in fact mention that
messages are unread, but this is the only status announced. It
stopped announcing that a message has been replied to or
forwarded. I have just forwarded an e-mail to confirm what I am
saying and NVDA does not announce that the message was forwarded.
These various statuses used to be announced until around May.
Could you perhaps test these two scenarios, forwarding and
replying and confirming if NVDA announces the status or not? If
those work for you but not for me, you can let me know and I'll
send you a log.
Thanks for attending to this.

2018.2.1, NVDA 2018.3beta3 or NVDA alpha-15933,b3aff97c as I
move through messages in the current version of Outlook 365,
NVDA reads "Unread" prior to the sender and subject of
messages which are unread (and nothing for read messages).
If a message is "flagged" it reads that information first,
and if a message is categorized, it reads that information
at the end.
If all of that isn't happening for you, could you perhaps
send me a copy of your NVDA log to info@...
ideally at debug level.
