    Quick question...what are these eyeglasses and red print about? Or have I
    set something that I am unaware of?
    Thanks in advance.

    On this topic: The 24hoursupport.helpdesk folder in my OE is highlighted in
    red, but there are no threads within the folder that I can find which are
    still highlighted. I've tried deleting all downloaded messages and
    un-watching (if that's a word) all the old dead threads but the group is
    still highlighted. How do I correct this very minor annoyance?

    As per my understanding, if say you had this thread 'watched', then if I was
    to make a new post with the same subject, my post would be chucked into this
    thread but would be shown in black, whereas the 24hshd would show that you
    had an unread 'watched' post, as soon as you read my post the red-watched
    status would go. In other words it's a mistake by OE.

    Anyway something like what I say !

    I just tested said (in a test group), and actually it done the opposite of
    what I said.
    The thread was marked red, but the group was black !

    Try View > Sort by > Watch/Ignore. That should put any 'watched'
    messages at the 'top of the list'. You *may* have also have to go to
    Current View > and untick "Group messages by Conversation" to find it.

    While a message in a thread is highlited (clicked on, opened :) you can
    go to Message/Watch Conversation, which will make the red and eyeglasses
    show. To get rid of the eyeglasses and red highlighting, untick the
    Watch Conversation.
