Gmail users are reporting an issue with Gmail, Google's email service, with Gmail apparently erroneously marking unread messages as read in many instances.

Although Google currently isn't reporting any disruptions or problems with Google Mail, you can check the status at Google's Apps Status Dashboard.

Follow the live Twitter feed below for more information on the bug.

According to TechCrunch, which reported the bug, the error "stems from a change Google made in how it treats the body of an e-mail through IMAP, although the company has yet to confirm this to us (or publicly)."
