Question XP question

This is probably an easy question, but here it goes.....
When you log on to win XP, in your user logon icon, there is usually a message such as " You have 2 unread messages" or similar to that.
Where are these messages???....I always thought it was the emails in outlook, but it's not.....any1 know?

On my system, that number does correspond with the number of emails that were unopened the last time I ran Outlook Express. This number will update each time I run Outlook.
