Unread mails in Microsoft® Outlook 2007
Microsoft Outlook 2007 comes with an integrated feature known as the unread mail count functionality. The unread mail count feature will allow users to see the number of all unread messages in an easy way. It can be viewed by just clicking the hyperlink located under the username. As you click the link, Windows will display the account which is having unread messages which are less than three days old. If there are multiple e-mail clients running, then Windows XP will aggregate the result from each account. As the hyperlink for unread message is selected, a summary of the e-mail and the corresponding account are displayed. The unread mail count is stored in the CurrentVersion UnreadMail under HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder of system registry.
