kmail does not mark new mails as "new"

I upgraded Debian Wheezy to Jessie which resulted in an upgrade of KDE and 
Kmail as well.

Kmail is at version 4.11.3 now and with this update the "new" message option 
disappeared. That means that new mails are marked just as "unread" in blue 
color and also the context menu does not offer the option "mark as new".

That's annoying and uncomfortable because it's impossible to distinguish 
between unread old mails and new mails.
How can I fix this?
