Messenger displays wrong email count

    I've been having this problem with Messenger Live (Current version is 8.5
    beta), but I also had it with all the versions before.

    When I click on the little icon that says I have x number of emails waiting
    , and it brings up the hotmail page, i would read and delete those new
    emails, but it doesn't always update it on messenger.

    This process will continue and messenger ultimately ends up saying i have
    alot of new emails when in fact i have none.

    Why does this keep happening? It's annoying because now I don't know if i
    really have new emails or not.

    Ideally I'd like to fix this so it doesn't keep happening, but if no one has
    a solution, I would at least like to know how to reset the email count to 0.

    thanks for anyone's advice

  2. Greetings Mike,

    The count is all done server-side, there really isn't anything you can do to attempt to
    change anything.

    Although the count is sometimes unreliable, it's been fine for me lately.
