Usage: Download xp_mailnotify.vbs and save this file to your hard drive. Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file. A confirmation dialog will appear and remind you to log off/back on or restart your computer.  This script can be viewed in Notepad or any text editor, as to the specific Registry key and value that are updated.  This is a "per user" setting, so the script will need to be run from each user's desktop that you don't want "unread mail" for.
