Problem with Unread/Read update

I have a problem with Unread/Read update when two Notes clients access the same mail database. When one client opens a message and reads it, Notes changes it to Read. However, if it opens a mail database from a different workstation, the mail still marks as Unread.
Unread marks are kept at the database level and are associated with a specific Notes ID. If that ID is different in any way, unread marks will be treated separately. It is my guess that there is something different about the ID files. I would copy one of them to the other machine and try it again. The unread marks should be synched.
