Is it safe to delete the following key in the Registry:

"HKey_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/UnreadMail'

It's because my Window XP's Welcome screen SOMETIMES is not showing the correct message: "You have xx unread mail" where I don't actually have any 'unread mail'. I'm using XP Pro with Outlook 2003 as my email handler. When this happens, I have to go and edit this registry key to correct the problem, it's annoying.

Or, is there any other way to rectify this issue?

Cheers
