New e-mail is marked as 'read'

I opened my mailbox this morning and all my mail that arrived over the weekend was marked as read (it was black) and the only unread mail I had was today's mail. Why does this happen?
There are two possibilities that I am aware of.
  1. Someone has a copy of your ID file and read your mail.
  2. There is a glitch in the unread marks that makes it appear someone read your mail when, in fact, no one did.
Since all of your mail is marked as read, I suspect option 2 is more likely. I have seen this problem before, and various customers of mine have complained about it as well. I do not know any pattern about when it happens, but I have seen it.
