BUG: Gmail Messages Being Marked as Read

November 5, 2009

mark-readIf you found when you checked your email this morning that you had new messages already marked read, you’re not alone. A bug appears to affecting at least a subset of Gmail users and causing unread emails to be erroneously marked as read.

There are multiple threads on the GmailGmailGmail

support forums, as well as a good deal of Twitter chatter, but so far no response from GoogleGoogleGoogle


Every indication is that this appears to be a bug and not an exploit, as many people initially feared (so your Gmail account was likely not compromised, and no one is reading your emails). Speculation is that the bug is a result of a change in the way Gmail handles IMAP support. The issue is also reportedly affecting Gmail on AndroidAndroidAndroid

and iPhone phones.

This has been a rough couple of months for Gmail’s reliability, as it experienced a couple of major bouts of downtime in early and late September.
