When I receive new emails the envelope icon appears in the notification area down in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
When I read those emails the envelope icon disappearsa.
However, when I move the spam messages unread to the deleted items folder, the icon remains. It stays tehre even after I've emptied the deleted items folder. I can only clear it by closing down OE and restarting it.
Is there any way to make this icon disappear once the messages have been sent to the deleted items folder? Or is this just one of those irritating little quirks I have to put up with?
You could try right-clicking the notification area...unlock the taskbar...Properties...notification area...customize, then tick 'New Mail' icon to 'Hide when inactive'. If that helps. Re-lock taskbar when finished.
Thanks for those suggestions. I've tried not reading the emails until they're all downloaded, but that didn't work; I'll try changing the icon properties as watchful suggested. Hope it works, and thanks again!
