    Also I forgot to add that the icon in left corner (you know when you got a new mail) stays always there even if I read a new mail!!!!!!!

    winmail.exe is a Windows Mail\r from Microsoft Corporation\r belonging to Microsoft® Windows® Operating System\r We strongly recommend that you run a FREE registry scan to identify winmail.exe related errors.

    winmail.exe is not a critical component. It is highly recommended that you run a virus scan to optimize memory, CPU and Internet settings.

    msconfig should only be used for diagnosing. Once you determine what you don't want starting remove the program from the calling location, listed under "Location" in msconfig.
