Windows 7: WLM 2009 - "This Message is Being Watched"

WLM 2009 - "This Message is Being Watched"

I got an email today (legitimate) from eBay giving me an order update telling me my order has been shipped. In my email list, it came in as red instead of the usual black. When I open the email, WLM adds something to it that says the message is being watched. Again, this email is legit, so how do I get it back to black and remove the "being watched" thing? Thanks.

Thanks. I read that previously. There doesn't seem a way to change it back to black and remove the "being watched" part of it.

Update: I went into my WLM options and there was something in there about "highlight watched messages." It was selected as red, so I put it back to the default colour of black. I'm still getting the "being watched" part, though.

Perhaps you clicked on the Watched Items column, the one with the
eyeglasses? If one of the messages is the color red, and there's an
eyeglass symbol beside it, click again and again on the eyeglass to make it
go away. This tool is useful in marking threads that you wish to follow.

The email came in like that (red and with the eyeglasses symbol). I don't see a "watched item" column at all.

That turned off the "being watched" message and removed the eyeglasses icon, but now it says "this message is being ignored." Isn't there a way to have the email not labelled at all, and just have a blank area there like all my previous emails? In my six years of using WLM, this is the first time I encountered this.

I've solved it. I got another "this message is being watched" email in WLM 2009 yesterday. Here's what I did. I saved the email to my desktop, and then deleted the one in WLM 2009. I right-clicked the email on my desktop, chose properties, clicked the details tab, clicked on "remove properties and personal information," put the bullet in the second option of "remove the following properties from this file," clicked OK, and then drug the email from my desktop back into my WLM folder. It is now black without the message is being watched bit.
