unread message on XP login screen

I recently upgraded to Office 2003.  I frequently get 
messages on my Windows XP login screen that state one of 
the users has 1 or more unread messages.  Yet when we 
open Outlook there are none.  There aren't any in the 
unopened folder, there aren't any in the inbox, there 
aren't any in any folders.  I've even checked outlook 
express which we never use.  I have cleared my box and 
yet the message is still there.  The only way to remove 
this message is to use the XP restore feature and restore 
Windows to a previous date (prior to when it first 
started).  Then after a few days it comes back.  My 
computer is a Dell XPS 3.0 and less than a month old.  
Also this has happened on my other Dell, so it is not 
computer-specific.  Anyone know how to remove this 
feature or at least make it read correctly?

This is really a Windows question.  Outlook does not set that number.  I
don't know about Outlook 2003, but as of November 22, 2003, only Outlook
Express and Windows Messenger set that number.  See
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=304148 for how to disable it.

Imap message Corruption on slow/inconsistent internet
I frequently work overseas and the internet connections are sketchy at best. When I have particularly slow and unreliable access - sometimes internet completely goes out for 3 - 5 seconds - Imap messages begin to be corrupted. I have seen this many times where one message title is applied to all messages downloading in IMAP. I get 5 messages with the same title and time and date, while the content is the content of the respective messages - just the title and header information is screwed up. I have also frequently run into problems where Outlook IMAP access meshes two or more emails ...

How do I segregate cc and "to" messages in Outlook?
Need to separate messages I am copied on with messages sent directly to me. frandan wrote: > Need to separate messages I am copied on with messages sent directly to me. Logically there is no difference between the To and Cc headers. Either can be used to specify the recipients. Neither of them are used to actually specify the recipient to the mail server. The To, Cc, and Bcc fields are merely presented to you for organizational purposes. Your e-mail client compiles an aggregate list of recipients from these *fields* in its UI and then sends a separate RCPT-TO command to yo...

Message Tracking enabled, but not working
Hi there, I have 1 Exchange 2k3 server which has been running for about 3 months now. I enabled message tracking on the server, and had been able to track messages no problem. However, now when doing a search for messages in the message tracking center, the results aren't accurate. It won't return all messages sent to/received from particular senders. I've had a look at the actual message log itself & confirmed that the correct entries are all being logged. It seems to be a problem querying the log. This has only happened recently, as during the initial server setup...

SPAM filter does not work when rule moves message to other mailbox
It seems that the Outlook 2003 SMAP filter does not work for messages that are moved to another mailbox upon arrival. I have a number of email accounts and would like each of them to receive mail in a different mailbox. To achieve this I have set up rules, moving messages to a different mailbox, depending on which account they were received by. Unfortunately it seems that the SPAM filter does not get applied to messages that get moved. I'd like the messages to first be SMAP filtered and the remaining ones moved to the appropriate mailbox. Does anybody have a solution? Thank...

Question regarding WM_DEVICECHANGE message
Hi, I am working on an application that need to detect USB devices dynamically. I read in MSDN that WM_DEVICECHANGE can be used for this purpose. I have a custom USB device & corresponding USB driver. The device is powered by external power supply. So when I switch on my device, I get a WM_DEVICECHANGE message in my application, but wParam for this message is DBT_DEVNODES_CHANGED, and lParam for this message is 0(NULL). I expected that wParam would be DBT_DEVICEARRIVAL, so I can identify my device by corresponding lParam. When I tried detecting insertion of some other USB device (i.e. ...

messages not being moved to my sent items folder
Hello all, and thank you very much in advance for your help. A few days ago, I must have changed a setting or something, because now when I send e-mail in MS Outlook, the e-mails just in my outbox, changing from italicized dated e-mails to e-mails that have no sent date. For a day or so I tried resending these e-mails only to find out they are indeed being sent, but they don't then move to the sent items folder. This is frustrating and urgent, because all my business-tracking of correspondence is done by my dated e-mails that have for years automatically gone into my "sent ite...
