I have installed Windows XP and so far it is running great without any problems. (knock on wood). This questions is more an annoyance. When I turn on the computer and the welcome screen appears it shows I have 11 unread email messages. But I know there are no unread email messages in outlook express. How do I get rid of this notification since it is an error?

Try this:

Tools | Options | Preferences tab | E-mail Options. Under Display a notification message when new mail arrives, uncheck the box.

It could be a carryover.

If that dosen't help, try going to MSCONFIG via Run. I know on Win2000 you don't have it. Unsure about XP.
If you can, go to the Startup tab, and see if you can find the entry for it. If you can, uncheck it.

Regards
