    Message icon on Lockscreen


    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 - and it always says '1' never any other number.

    I use Outlook 16 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.

    Thanks
    M

    :)

    Thanks derekimo, so where is my messaging - once I am logged in? i.e. how do I see my message? and how do I get to the place with the options in your screenshot - I'd like to know how to turn them on and off?

    Thanks

    Thanks for coming back to me, but - now I need a bit of clarification...
    1. notifications were switched off
    2. I had no messages in my messaging app - if fact it just showed me a version of my Skype messages, which I am always on top of anyway - I'm a regular skype user
    3. I don't see the options that you had in your screenshot where you can choose which icons to show on the lock screen - just a switch for notifications on/off

    Sorry if I am being dumb/missing something obvious

    I don't know why it's showing that if you don't have any messages and they are turned off.
