MSN help needed!

Discussion in 'The Clubhouse Bar' started by I cant think of a username, Oct 11, 2006.

  1. Y'know when you turn on your computer and you have to log in to your account (if there's more than 1), well if you have a hotmail e-mail address it comes up under your account name ' # unread messages' and if you right click on it says your email address and whatever, well how do you get rid of this?? I have a hotmail address and before that thing never came up, until now. +rep to anyone who can help me!!!

    yeah I had that but I'm not sure what i did, i probably just logged into messenger and then my emails, iunno??
     
  5. i didn't really understood what you meant. what do you exactly want to do ? did you change of msn ? from 7.0 to 7.5 or something like that ?
    try to explain correctly (i couldn't understand some words as i'm french :) )
     
  6. When you go to log in to your account after turning on your computer, below your name it says '26 unread mail messages' well what I want to do is stop it saying this

    Start Regedit
    For a single user: Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail
    For all users: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail
    Create a DWORD key called MessageExpiryDays
    Give it a value of 0
