This may be an old question . . . .

Opening screen (XP) displays a list of accounts. Under one, there is a line
"52 e-mails . . ."

This line has no bearing on reality though it does change from 'n' to 1
occassionally.

How is this changed, made to reflect reality? Or even deleted, not
displayed?

Best Regards,
Wayne

Download and install TweakUI:

Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP (TweakUI)
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/...

After installing, go to Start > Programs > PowerToys for Windows XP >
TweakUI. Expand "Logon" and uncheck "Show unread mail on Welcome screen".

Note: Unread message alerts may indicate you have unread messages not only
in Outlook Express, but Hotmail and/or MSN email accounts as well.
