    go to user settings

    change the way users log on

    check 'Use the Welcome Screen' and 'Use Fast User Switching'

    restart the computer.

    thats not the solution!
    I think u meant:

    UNcheck 'Use the Welcome Screen' and 'Use Fast User Switching'.

    But it'll disable the new Login screen and will enable the classic login screen!

    The solution is as follows:

    Open regedit and nevigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail

    And create/modify DWORD value named MessageExpiryDays and change its value to 0.

    Though Vishal Gupta's method is the best, you can also use AutoPatcher. There is an option to disable the 'Unread mails' text from the logon screen.
