Hi Gezim,

there's a setting for how messages are displayed in the message list which can 
affect whether jaws says unread. The options are automatic, two line view, and 
one line view. On the automatic setting, which is the default, the message is 
displayed either as two or one lines, depending on the space available. Jaws 
read unread with the one line view, but not with the two line view, so it's 
safest to change this option to one line view. To do this:
1. Open the layout dialog from the view menu.
2. tab to the message list button, and press space bar.
3. the three options are now displayed. tab to the one line view check box, and 
press spacebar to check it. Note that visually these options are displayed as 
radio buttons, but for some reason they behave like check boxes when using 
keyboard navigation.
4. press the ok button.

This may or may not be your problem, people seem to have very varying 
experiences using jaws and windows live mail,
