Re: XP Pro e-mail notifications on user screen
To rid the user log-on screen of the unread e-mails notification, download Microsoft's free Tweak UI (Tweak the User Interface) application. Once you have installed the program, expand the Logon branch, click on Unread Mail, and uncheck "Show unread mail on Welcome screen". The next time you reboot your computer the changes will take effect. If there are multiple user accounts, repeat the procedure for each.
