INBOX FIX: Get rid of those " -1" Unread Messages from your Inbox

How many of you have ever experienced getting "-1" Unread Messages in your Inbox when in fact your Inbox has No Unread Messages or No Messages at all? I know I have experienced this occurence once and no matter how many times I reset my device, renew the partnership, or purge the Inbox, there still remains that annoying "-1" Unread Message.

Well, a fix has finally been developed. Authentic Relmerator Technology has come up with FixUnreadCount v1.0 This utility is a small 9KB exe file that fixes the unread count for every mail folder in every account on the device. This utility will detect and repair these discrepencies.

Just copy the exe file into the Pocket PC and simply run the exe file using file explorer.

From the creator - "It's not flashy, but it does the job :)"

I have not been able to test this, but for those who have the "-1" Unread Message bug, please let us know how it performs.

Didn't work for me - ran ok, but still have the "2 unread messages" message :-(

I have a much more severe problem: My xda switches on when it receives an sms. I don't want this since this "power on" neutralizes the button-block. Also it obviously makes the display touch-sensitive again - things you don'T want when its in your pocket...

Has anyone help?

I ran the program successfully and the program showed all ok.  However, it did not fix the problem that shows incorrect message on my Today's screen, "Inbox: 3 Unread Messages".

It worked great for me. I consistently showed 4 more Unread messages than really existed, and now it has the right number. Thanks!

I've heard various reports that this little prgramme helps but I can't find it anywhere to download now.  Does anyone have a copy

Anyone know if there is a patch for SMS numbers from contacts for the i-mate 2003? International numbers stored in Outlook contacts beginning with a + for international dialing transfer into the SMS address line without the + 

Any thoughts?

I was able to download the app at this location.  It worked like a charm for me.  I had -1  unread.  It always screwed up the syncronization.

I was looking for a fix since a long time when I found this forum!
It worked fine on my iPAQ 5550.
Thanks a lot!

Worked great! Set my supposed 222 unread emails back to 0.

Worked fine for the Inbox, but didn't touch the 'Drafts' folder for some reason. Still says I have 12 unread messages in it when I don't have any.

Posted by Madbot on 16.08.05 - 17:47:52

It went through and did the right counts (9 unread fixed to now 0 unread)

Except it now tells me I have 10 unread mail - it actually added one :-/
