Email/possible email glitch


Hi, this is a bit complicated but I'll try my best to explain...

Last month I was talking to someone by email, and after I sent my last email to her, I didn't think that I got a response back, but now I'm starting to wonder, because there were 5 extra messages in the display that says how many messages you have in your email, and when I noticed this I noticed that the persons header, or thread (if that's the right word) is bold. I am referring to the words in the subject line that you see when you check your email. Now when I clicked on that bold thread I didn't find any new messages, but each time that I did clicked, a message would delete, until finally the fifth time that I clicked the header (there were 5 messages), it was no longer bold. And the other day, there was another thread from someone else that was bold, only this time I could see the new message that was in there after I clicked the bold header. Do you think that the girl that I was talking to sent me some messages, but for some reason I couldn't access them because of some kind of computer glitch? How come I could see the other person's messages after I clicked the bold header but I couldn't see hers?

Thanks in advance.

I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using the Opera browser since year 2000 & the M2 email client since 2004. I will do my best to answer also other email related questions and email client settings related, etc. But please no Outlook or Outlook Express questions, since I do not use that. (But if you really want to ask in that field, I will sure do try my best to answer your question nicely and correctly anyway :) ). This includes but is not limited to web based email or whatever comes to your mind.


I am a Management Assistant in Informatics education which was done under the control of the CCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry). And had to solve various PC, email and other related problems. Using computers since 1990.
