I've just logged into my account. This is my first loggin in just over a week; maybe even two.
Anyway, it looks like my U2U's have been read by someone (O.K, to keep in line with ATS, something) other than me.

This happens when the member that sent you the u2u checks it in their Outbox.

It will stay highlighted until either you open it, OR until the other person opens it.
Personally, I prefer to leave it highlighted and not open it myself, so that I can see if they actually opened it or not. If you open it first, then if they do not reply, you will never know for sure if they even read it or not.
16f.) Private Messages: You will not use the private messaging system to send mass messages to multiple member accounts. All private messages are subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use and the Terms and Conditions of Membership. Violations will result in immediate account termination. You also agree that Private Messages are confidential. You will not post or publically display messages received from TAN, their agents, or any other members, in any way, without the written permission of the author. TAN, at their discretion, may review the content of your private messages when, and only when, complaints are received from the recipient(s) of your messages.
And no offence, but I doubt SO or Springer are interested in your PM's.
So... it can be a glitch or someone complained.
If you are getting a notice that you have a message and by the time you go to your inbox and it shows read, it is because in that time, the sender read what they sent you.
