IMAP "unread" read notifications aren’t suppressed in Exchange Server 2016

Symptoms

In an Exchange Server 2016 environment, a sender attaches a read receipt to a message and sends it to an IMAP user. If the message is not read and is deleted by the recipient, an "unread" notification is returned to the sender. This behavior occurs even if the -SuppressReadReceipt option is set to $True through the Set-IMAPSetting cmdlet.

Resolution

To fix this issue, install Cumulative Update 4 for Exchange Server 2016 or a later cumulative update for Exchange Server 2016 .

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
