    My log-on page in XP Home states "1 unread email message" beside my profile ....but I don't have any unread messages in my inbox or trash.

    I tried re-booting, but it's still there.

    Anyone have this problem before and know of a fix?

    Download PowerToys and run TweakUI. Under the Login section, there is an option to turn it off

    or

    >and press OK
    >Look for HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    >Expand it (either double click it or the + beside it)
    >Expand untill you arrived in
    >HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUnreadMail
    >click on the folder with foldername= your email address
    >click on MessageCount
    >In your case the value is <7>
    >Change the value to <0>
    >Click OK
    >Done!

    Accendo,
    Mine does the same thing, but it goes away after a couple days?!?! If you don't do what Overdrive26 says, next time you get mail just be sure to open all the mail and not leave one unread before you log-off.

    THe message went away on its own...disappeared this morning. Thanks for the tips, though. I'll save your instructions, Overdrive, in case it becomes a recurring problem. [:)]
