Broadcast Message popup won't go away

I have YaBB version 2.2.1

http://www.ozpolitic.com/forum/YaBB.pl

I recently appointed a global admin. He got a notification for all the past broadcast messages. He deleted them all, but he still gets the popup message notifying him of new BMs. He tried logging out and deleting cookies. I have also disabled the broadcast message feature. Nothing seems to get rid of it for him. I haven't gotten a broadcast message in ages.

I am having the same issue with version 2.5.2. I have appointed new admins and they are getting a message that they have 2 broadcast messages. It is showing two message in the message count, but no message exist. How do I get rid of the pop message or zero the count.
Thanks,
Tony

This is a long standing issue with BM messages. (Which finally got fixed in 2.6)  Check and make sure the file Members/broadcast.messages is a 0 length file. If there's anything in it, it can create a false positive.

Also, in versions prior to 2.6, BMs sent to groups (such as multiple admins) never get properly marked as having been read. The BMs have to be removed to stop the popups.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!
