Do they mean replied/forwarded, or unread?

My testing shows that unread is still fine. Replied/forwarded tried to be supported several times but has always failed with various languages and has never made it into an official version of NVDA.

Hi saw the message below and thought, as a new nvda is imminent maybe somebody might like to find out what is going on here. I cannot myself test it as do not have the versions needed.
I have posted that I do not think wx4 has anything to do with it, more likely yet another outlook related quirk.

Hello all

I have noticed that the NVDA snapshots of the past two months or so no longer read message statuses in Outlook. This is true of Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016 and Outlook in Office 365. Could this be an unpleasant side-effect of the migration to WXPython 4? Can we look forward to this being fixed in the not too distant future. It really was such a helpful feature when NVDA used to announce message statuses.

Kind regards
