Default Something very simple

Hi guys, i was wondering if someone could explain something quite simple to me. I am using XP service pack 2. When i start up my pc, i can choose who to log in as, next to my name it says the number of emails i have, but not next to anybody elses profile. How do i turn this off? Thanks and i hope you can help.

Start Regedit
For a single user: Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\UnreadMail
For all users: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\UnreadMail
Create a DWORD key called MessageExpiryDays
Give it a value of 0
