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?   ????????

I understand your situation.. Do you want to try email notifiers like this and maximize outlook only if you want to read the full message

I donot see any other way of making that notification sophisticated enough other than using email notifiers like this

I appreaciate your effort. I checked the URL.  It seems to be broken, but leads to other links.  Unfortunatley none is what I'm hoping for.

I won't be surprised if what I'm looking for isn't available.  Sure strikes me a odd. Given the common nature of this issue in my opinon. I mean, you and everyone else knows what i'm talkiing about.  I'd like to leave this open a bit to see if anyone else throws something else out.
