Mark outlook emails as read using Python!
Good morning,

I have created the following script, which downloads unread email attachments from my outlook account. How do I then mark them as read once its downloaded?
Thank you

import win32com.client
import datetime
import os
import email

outlook = win32com.client.Dispatch("Outlook.Application").GetNamespace("MAPI")
inbox = outlook.GetDefaultFolder(6).Folders.Item("LGW Performance")
message = inbox.items

for message in inbox.Items:
    if message.Unread == True:
        for attachment in message.Attachments:


            #attachment.SaveAsFile("C:\\Users\\shanen\\Desktop\\Python\\"+ attachment.FileName)
