Locate specific email related to sys tray icon
Posted on 2004-10-08
I'm running outlook 2000.
I'd like to know how to quickly determine the location of the mail that causes the small icon notification in the system tray. Yes, yes, yes. I know I can turn it off. .............and yes, yes , yes...........i know "just look in the inbox"..come on. Give me some credit here.
I've found over the last year or so, that it frequently does not go away when a particular email has been read. Or worse, it appears when an email that has been directed to another folder via my rules wizard, goes unread. For instance..............spam. Verrryyyy frustrting to hunt and pect through my 3 years developed pst tree (this is my home non-exchange isp account email). Looking for the email.
Worse. Worrying that by clicking on one after another email, trying to make the icon disaappear, i'm sending a message to the spammer that I've "opened" their spam, and thus confirmed 1) I exist.......2) I've read there spam.
I can't be the only one with this irriitation. Whats the fix? Utility? Registry hack? ????????
