I have hotmail pinned to the windows 7 taskbar, and I dont get the notification when i have unread emails, this is supposed to work but i cant figure out why its not for me.
I have the jump list feature on the icon when i right click.

What am I missing, can anyone help.

Thanks.

Do you have IMAP or POP3? No notifications with IMAP

If so how can i check.

The pop-up notifications for Hot Mail come from Windows Live Messenger. Often times Messenger becomes deactivated (for whatever reason), and you have to reopen it. And/or you might not be signed to Messenger in at any given time -- so you need to check that too, and if you're not signed in to Messenger, then do so. Your pop-ups will immediately appear.

If your Messenger is in need of repair, close Windows Live Messenger completely, then open Programs and Features in the Control Panel (icons view), click on Windows Live Essentials 2011, then select the ‘Repair all Windows Live Programs’ option. This will hopefully repair it for you and allow it to work properly afterwards.

What i am on about is the little badge on the hotmail icon in the windows 7 taskbar that tells you how many unread emails you have not the pop up from messenger.

If you haven't used Live Mail for 90 days the service is automatically de-activated, after which you have to open the program and get it re-activated, at least I think that's how things are set up.
