My opening ‘Lock-screen’ has an icon like a small (squareish) speech bubble with a number 1 underneath, I think it tells me that I have 1 message.
But the thing is, I don’t think I do.
It is similar to the notifications icon in the system tray at the bottom-right (once I’m logged in), but the icon on the lock screen is the same whether I have notifications there or not.
I use Outlook and again, the icon on the lock screen is the same whether I have unread messages in Outlook or not.
I have attached a picture of the icon – for clarity. I would love it if anyone could tell me where my unread message (that is so important it should be on my opening lock-screen) is.
