You will need to use Internet Explorer to correctly access the link that I posted.

This is the manual way to run the script that VoG™ referred to.

Start > Run, type regedit and press Enter then navigate to registry key
E-Mail Address] In the right pane right-click MessageCount, click Modify and change the value to 0 (zero).
