I set up some rules for both the Subject line and body of incoming messages to get rid of junk mail. I have Outlook move the messages to the deleted folder. I also set it to mark the messages as "read".
The only thing I can't figure out is this: When I get a new mail message, I get an icon in the task bar in the lower right hand corner. The icon looks like an envelope (I'm sure you have the same thing). Even though I automatically send the junk mail to the deleted folder and mark it as read, that icon still comes up saying I have new mail. Is there a way to stop that from happening.1 AnswerSoftware1 decade ago
