    Hey Spaceman

    I have Windows XP also and have MSN. As far as I can tell, the message on the logon screen that you have "X" unread e-mail messages is designed to make you crazy. One day it says I have 35 unread messages, one day it says I have 6 unread messages--none of these bear any resemblance to the reality of how many messages I have under MSN or any of my other e-mail programs.

    Interestingly, once after I ran my antivirus program, the inaccurate message about e-mail messages went away! It came back though. I have read lots of other comments on various forums about this problem and I have seen no solution. I have decided to just ignore those silly messages! I'm going to log on and check my e-mail anyway, so why stress about this little XP demon!

    Hey Ann, just thought it'll be nice if it could work, as I said I log on to exchange and even though it reflects mail @ msn, nothing from Outlook. This is one of those nice things that's not a necesarry thing...

    I don´t think it´s designed to show both emails from msn AND outlook, maybe it´s either or.

    Must be if you have a permanent connection... cant exactly check unread mail unless you're online and msn has checked it form inbox....

    to disable it, i am sure i saw something in TweakUI and/or X-setup

    Tweakui can be downloaded from downloads section
