email not downloading as "Read" when previously read on a pc.

Switched from iphone to Galaxy S8 and so far so good. pretty easy phone and mostly seamless with other google products. What I'm really frustrated with is this:
When the gmail app and the factory android email app sync's email for both personal and work email, it's not acknowledging previously read emails on a pc to my phone. So, I have to go through and Edit, Select all and Mark as read. I am not having a sync issue with my Gmail or my work email, that part works great (sounds like I got lucky) just the previously read email situation.. total PITAss. I have been through the settings a million times, cant figure this out.
Any suggestions?
