    One of my email messages displays with red text in the Inbox list, and when I open it, it has a red banner for the subject line (instead of blue). Other messages from the same sender appear as normal. I've looked at it in GMail and it looks like a normal message. What does this indicate?

    Well it's a payment confirmation...either the sender marked this email as urgent, or it might have sensitve/secure info in it? I am kinda leaning towards the urgent thing.

    I just tested on and setting priority to High didn't do it. Neither did a return receipt request.

    It's to indicate emails that are flagged as urgent.

    Thanks for the replies, guys! I figured it was High Priority, but it could mean it was encrypted or a bad security certificate or other security warning.

    After you replied I figured out how to look at the message headers and it showd "X-Priority: 1", which is high priority. I also composed a new message and changed its priority to High. The subject line turned red. I think that confirms what you all said.

    Thanks again to all of you!
