    If you use Windows XP and Outlook express and have people sharing the computer, there will appear notification underneath the user name "Bob Smith" "3 Unread Messages". This can appear even if the user is not logged in.

    MORE INFORMATION
    Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

    This e-mail hyperlink is only displayed if the e-mail client that your computer is running populates the following registry key:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
      \Software
       \Microsoft
        \Windows
         \CurrentVersion
          \UnreadMail


    You cannot disable this feature in the user interface, nor can you configure the Welcome screen to populate the unread message count from only a particular e-mail program. For example, you might not want your e-mail messages from UserID@hotmail.com displayed on the Welcome screen. To work around this behavior, you can set the permissions on the following registry key to read-only for the System account:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
     \Software
      \Microsoft
       \Windows
        \CurrentVersion
         \UnreadMail


    When the program tries to update the registry key as new mail arrives, it will not have sufficient permission to do so and the Welcome screen will not be updated. To do this:

    1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit).
    2. Navigate to the following folder in the registry:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
     \Software
      \Microsoft
       \Windows
        \CurrentVersion
         \UnreadMail

    3. Right-click the UnreadMail folder, and then click Permissions.
    4. Click the System account, and then clck to select the Deny check box for Full Control.
    5. Click OK.
    6. Quit Registry Editor.

    To block only one of the e-mail clients from updating the Welcome screen, permissions to the registry key under UnreadMail" that specify the e-mail account must have System permissions set to read-only. For example,assume that you have the two following registry keys under the UnreadMail key:

    UserID@msn.com
    UserID@hotmail.com

    To block UserID@msn.com from being displayed on the screen and to retain UserID@hotmail.com, set the permissions on the UserID@msn.com key:

    1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit).
    2. Navigate to the following folder in the registry:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
     \Software
      \Microsoft
       \Windows
        \CurrentVersion
         \UnreadMail


    3. Expand the UnreadMail folder.
    4. Click the e-mail provider that you do not want to be displayed on the Welcome screen.
    5. Right-click the folder, and then click Permissions.
    6. Click the System account, and then click to select the Deny check box for Full Control.
    7. Click OK.
    8. Quit Registry Editor.
