2 unread messages at login but no email present

When I select my user account, it states I have 2 unread emails. When I open
email, there are no messages in the inbox or anywhere else.

How can I retrieve these messages?

My folder shows (2) and it's bold, which means I have 2 unread messages.
Well, when I look in my inbox I don't see any unread messages. I've done auto
preview per our IT guy's suggestion. I've done advanced find per forum
suggestion and still no luck.

Any other options?

Other than the emails I transferred from my old computer, no emails show up
when I search. My indexing status says everything is indexed, and everything
seems to be checked appropriately in Search Options. Ideas?

Running XP Home edition SP2 and Office 2003 SP3...when XP starts I get a 122
unread messages at log on...but there are no unread messages when I start OL
2003. how do I correct the incorrect log on info message ?

This "may" have started after office SP3 update ?

Thanks, Tim

I can see that emails message icon are receiving emails but it is to my
surprise that no emails were found in the inbox? Can anyone help, please?

When I login, there is a message next to my icon that says I have unread
messages in my inbox. Is this referring to Outlook and if so, I have no
unread messages. How do I clear this message?

I had an old IMAP account, which I canceled and now can no longer access the
messages. It had a couple of unread messages when I changed IMAP accounts.
I have a new IMAP account with another couple of unread messages. I changed
some forwarded messages that were in the inbox to "mark as read" and moved
them into a folder.
At the XP log in page, under this user name (my husband actually) it shows
13 unread messages. I've looked all over in Outlook trying to figure out how
to delete stuff or change something to make this a more accurate count. I've
restarted Outlook, restarted the computer and still have this false message
at log-in.
I want to fix the false message, and if possible access the old IMAP account
and fiddle with it.
Using Windows XP, all up to date, Outlook 2003 (Office 2003) also recently
updated.

I have Outlook 2002 with SP3 installed - I've used it fine for years. All of
a sudden yesterday, I get a little message at top of emails I've sent with a
yellow-brown backround (same colors as Notes) saying something like this: I
realize its somehow Task related, but I can't figure out how or more
importantly how to get rid of it:

by Saturday January 1,4501 12:32AM
Completed Saturday January 1,4501 12:32AM
You attempted to Recall this message on Saturday January 1,4501 12:32AM
This item has been marked for delivery by Saturday January 1,4501 12:32AM
..

Anyone have any idea what might have gotten turned on, and more importantly
how I get rid of this ! Thank you.

I have the exact same problem as Alpacian. I do not have any messages that
are unread but I still get a note when logging on that I have 2 unread
messages. How do I clear this message?

Whenever i log into my windows id, it always shows i have 2 unread messages.
the same is shown even in the fire fox- read mail menu. but there is not
unread messages in my ms outlook! how do i solve this?

when a go to outlook there are no unread messages there.
I believe the two massages contain large drawing files

Using OE 6 / Win XP Pro. I have a couple of messages that have reasonably
large zip attachments (about 4mb) and they just won't send. It looks as if
they are sending ok then finally it says "
Some errors occurred whilst processing he requesting tasks. Please review
the list of errors below for more details" but the errors pane is blank.
Recipient is a regular recipient, not using a message limiting web based
email
And also sometimes the messages DO go but they are not saved to the sent
folder which is the default) and again I get the same error message even
though it's gone. I can't tell who's actually receiving the messages and
attachments and who aren't!

Hi,
I cannot see unread messages, outlook says there says there are 2 new messages but you cannot see them. I have a Exchange2003 and I have 1 mailbox that is having this problem.
This is a info@ and 3 persons can use this mailbox.
All 5 can see “inbox” bold and nr.2 next to is. So there should be 2 new messages, but you cant see them. New messages are still coming in, if there are 5 new then he will say there are 7 new and you will see 5.
This is a problem that I had for a will, but did not had the time for correcting it.
Meanwhile I install a new server with SBS2003 ( did not migrated, new install ) and I exported the PST of the info mailbox, check it for errors … noting found. Imported the PST file to the new info mailbox on the new server… and there it was, 2 unread messages.
Any ideas ?

How do I delete 718 unread messages at one time?

My unread messages from only one particular email address end up in my deleted items folder. There are several domains on the same server but only one email account causing this issue. I don't have any rules set up.

I'm using MS Outlook 2007(12.0.6514.5000) SP2 MSO (12.0.6514.5000).

Any suggestions how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

hi there,
i have tried to set up outlook for my husbands blueyonder email address. it
all seems to be fine in terms of settings etc, the account will let me send
mail and i have tested to my hotmail account - but no emails are coming back
into the inbox? Can anyone help, its driving me mad!

I've recently changed to Office 2007. I use Outlook, and keep my Inbox open
all day. Previously, any unread messages showed up automatically (whether I
did a manual Send & Receive or whether it was a scheduled one). Now, when a
message comes in, the Inbox in the Folder List shows up in bold with the
number of unread messages beside it, but the actual Inbox itself doesn't show
anything UNTIL I change the View. It doesn't matter what View I have open
(whether it's Messages or Last Seven Days or Unread Messages) - it is the act
of changing the View itself that allows the new messages to show up. As you
can imagine, this is incredibly frustrating! Any help would be gratefully
received.

I am temporarily living in France and am using Orange ISP while I am here.
It does a number of annoying things (so I'll be glad to be rid of it in due
course), but there is one in particular that someone may be able to help
with. I'm using WinXP with OE6.

In OE ToolsOptionsGeneral, I have unchecked the option to 'Send and
receive messages at startup'. But every time I reboot OE, that option is
checked! How do I get it to stay unchecked, and am I correct in assuming
that Orange has done something to re-check it automatically? Unfortunately,
my French is not good enough to tackle Orange by telephone.

I setup Gmail following all instructions, but no emails are coming into Outlook 2010. The account shows setup and I have tried send and recieve, etc.

What else can be done?

Is there a way to select, open and reply to multiple messages at one time. These emails are located in one mailbox account. I need to reply to about a 100 messages to different recipients with the same canned message.

Hi

I installed a SBS2003 server 5 years ago. The certificate expired and I went to use the CEICW to create a new certificate. During the wizard it showed a X next to the creation of the new certificate, so it bombed out and didnt work.

I then ended up having to reinstall the server tools, etc etc, and i fixed the CEICW wizard, and the certificate has now been renewed.

Since this has happened the activesync doesnt want to sync accounts that were setup before the renewal of the certificate.

I have deleted the phone accounts, and set them up again, and it continues to "check for mail". What is weird is that it does connect to the server, and pulls down a listing of the subfolders, but just cant make the emails come in.

Testing wise, I have created a brand new user account on SBS, set this up on the iphone and it worked straight away.

I have also exmerged all the data out of an account that was setup before set the phone up and that worked also. When i import the data back in it still works, but if i delete the phone account then add the account in again (mimicking setting up the users phone) it breaks again and back to "checking email..." message. Shows folders, but no email

I have also tried deleting the mailbox, and reimporting the data. I have also tried deleting the user, recreating the user, and reimporting their data, and I still get to the same conclusion.

Has anyone else seen this, or have a work around?

Cheers

Hi,
I'd like to know whether it's possible to have each folder shown in
bold when they contain unread messages (moved by a rule for example)
with a number of unread messages?

Just did some testing with Oulook 2007.
Created a rule to move all incoming messages sent from a test account
to a "Misc" folder within another folder called "External".

When getting a message and applying the rule, Outlook opens the
"External" folder (what I already dislike) and then shows the "Misc"
folder in bold and sufixed with "(1)"
Now if I collapse the "External" folder, then I have no way to know
that it contains unread messages. Should also be bold with "(1)" next
to it (or total of unread messages in subfolders).

I had this in shareware apps and in the ugly Lotus Notes at work.

From what I heard, it works like this in Outlook 2003. But what about
2007?

I don't want to go to the "Search Folder" and check the "Unread
messages". This one takes forever to search for unread messages (since
I am under XP and indexing doesn't work -- no! not even with
DesktopSearch since this one is not usable under XP...) and also
doesn't really show the tree structure.

Any way to have (all collapsed!)
