View Full Version : Win XP log on message

09-03-2002, 08:07 PM
Hi All, I have just purchased & installed Win XP pro, During setup, I set up 4 logon accounts, Eg:myself & the wife have administrator accounts & the kids have limited accounts.
Problem is that when it gets to the logon window it says beside my name that I have 1 unread email message,but when I look in outlook express the unread message cannot be found :-(
I have deleted all messages from inbox,outbox,sent items,deleted items & drafts.
Any ideas will be much appreciated, Cheers Steve

Download Powertoys for windows xp from either the February PC World CD or http://windows.about.com/library/PowerToySetup.exe

Once installed open 'TweakUI for Windows XP' from the 'Powertoys for Windows XP' folder.

In the left hand column click the last entry: Repair.

In the drop-down list select 'Repair unread mail count' and click the 'Repair Now' button to the right of the list.

This should solve your problem.
