    The items in read are the alert template's header and footer messages. These messages can be edited or removed using the Alert Manager 2007 Central Administration components feature Manage Alert Templates. You will find this link under the Application Management tab. After clicking the link find the desired alert template and select Edit from the context menu. From the Edit page you can modify the alert template's header and footer content. 

    This feature is dependant on the Alert Manager Admin Components feature which can be installed with the Component Configuration manage found in the all programs menu.

    Regarding the ability to only show a portion of the alert message, this will have to be accomplished with HTML. The text-overflow:ellipsis; comes to mind as a possible solutions.
