number of emails on XP Home screen

  ReyesKing 16:45 07 May 05

Hi, the number underneath my login name is a vast number 337, on the home screen that appears before anyone has logged in. It is also not even my email account, as recently i checked the email of a friend who couldnt do so and that is why the number is so large. How do i set this to my email account and therefore change the number?

Use TweakUI click here

On the left hand pane click repair then on the right select Repair Unread Mail Count.

If you're not afraid of the Registry, you will find the setting at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, UnreadMail.

All accounts are listed under this key and the MessageCount value for any account can be Modified to 0 to clear the counter.
