[ngw] How do I read an email without the email status changing?

The way it's been presented here before is to go directly to the properties then do a "reply" to view the content.  However, I recently believe I've discovered that although it doesn't show a "read" status, there is a time stamp applied to the status with an empty action.

I want to be able to read my email that a coworker has sent to me, without the email status being marked as read.  If I change the email to unread, the status/notification email has already left the barn.
I know that the functionality is there for a reason, but some people use UNREAD emails as part of their work flow.  They peek at the email, see it requires more time to compose an answer and then mark it as unread to deal with it later.
Is there a way that I can read the email so that the sender does not get the notification email or the status of the email stays as UNREAD?  I believe I've seen this posted somewhere, but can't find it.
