    A friend uses XP. When he awakens his pc from slumber each am he sees a note
    ref a few unopened email messages awaiting, so this am he had 4 unopened
    messages..but what the note didn't tell him was he also had a further 10
    messages he
    hadn't read that had gone directly into other folders via message rules.
    Don't suppose he could arrange to see the total number of unopened email
    messages at a glance (without having to seek out and tot up all those from
    the various sub folders)?
    Thanks.

    The Welcome Screen message has nothing to do with Outlook Express.

    Compliments of Kelly:

    Use TweakUI/Logon/Unread Mail and Repair/Unread Mail Count
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp

    Disable Unread Mail on the Welcome Screen (Line 100)
    http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

    To remove an account or to change the count manually:

    Start>Run>Regedit>navigate to this key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail\[Your
    E-Mail Address]. In the right pane modify: Message Count, Change it to 0.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail. In
    the right pane modify: MessageExpiryDays Change it to 0.
