Unread Mail



Howzit Guys

Can anyone help with this one, I use Outlook XP - on XP Logon screen you can see unread e-mail messages from MSN Messenger is there a way to change this so that it reflects Outlook unread mail ???????

??? I use outlook xpress and no messenger, however i can see my unread mails!
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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
