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...
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
