Login Screen on Win XP - Unwanted Email Notice

  RogueTrooper1967 08:03 07 Jan 2005

I have recently had a notice added to my login screen telling me I have unread emails. The email adress is an old one and I would like to get rid of it - cant find any way to do this and would like to know how it appeared in the first place - any help would be appreciated.

Well, if you want then you can remove the e-mail account (from Outlook Express I assume) and delete any unread messages.

To delete the account - Tools > Accounts > Select Account and Click Remove

If you just want to stop the message then download and install Tweak UI (click here) Run this and navigate to the 'Login' section. Expand the section and select 'Unread Mail' and untick the box called 'Show Unread Mail on Welcome Screen'
