    Welcome Screen shows no. of unread emails (XP Pro SP1)

    Hi,

    Please can someone help me with a persistent irritation!!

    Running XP, when the opening screen appears listing the User Accounts, beneath each name is a hyperlink showing how many unread mail messages there are in several email inboxes. Firstly this is of no consequence to me and secondly, it seldom seems to be up to date!

    In an attempt to stop this message, I have even gone to one particular email address (a Hotmail account) and deleted every last item from the InBox and the Junk Mail folder, and still it tells me I have 59 unread messages for that one address.

    Can someone tell me: 1. Is there a way to stop this summary appearing (it used not to be there I am sure); and 2. If I have to have it, how can I make sure it refreshes so that if I have no unopened mail, it does not keep telling me I have 50+!!

    Thanks for any assistance

    Roger

    In addition to Stuart's method, you can also use TweakUI
