While making rules for messages i use, i chose to move a copy under a folder

 

The problem is that the message is copied there "UNREAD" 

 

is there a way I can change that to read?

Add "mark as read" action to the rule as well?

There is no mark as read option for messages you send

Yup, sorry, missed the part about "sent" messages. That's a known issue, you can use the workaround detailed here: https://www.slipstick.com/outlook/rules/mark-items-read/
