All the email it pulls are currently unread, it's really annoying, how do I set it up so Hotmail and Android know a email has been read?

This seems to primarily be a problem on a Galaxy S3. Are you having this issue w/ a different Android phone? – WEFX Dec 5 '12 at 13:42

I know the built-in Android mail client doesn't sync read status with Hotmail.

Have you tried the official Hotmail client? It does seem to support most of Hotmail's more advanced features.

Yes, this is what I use now. The interface is not the most convinent, but at least it works. – Yongke Bill Yu Dec 5 '12 at 15:22
