Show Unread Mail Count per Account
It would be helpful to see the unread message count for each separate account on the accounts menu in mail view.
This is desperately needed. I'm shocked. It isn't already there.

This would be great. I miss this from my Windows Phone.

Please please please add this!!!! One of the few complaints I have with outlook app!

I have 5 email accounts. I get around this by staying on "All Accounts" but it would be good to see how many of my new emails are in each account. Perhaps with an option to show total or focused inbox as with the app badge.
Currently the unread mail badge count only shows unread messages for the Inbox folder. It would be nice to be able to select folders to include in the overall badge count of unread messages. This feature is not currently available within the IOS mail app either.

I use two accounts. I'd like to get badge notifications for only one email account. But i can only turn it on for both or turn it off for both.

I want to suggest one feature, i.e. I m using two mail accounts, when ever I receive one email in both the accounts it will display as '2' then I will open app , and check the mail , but when I receive only one mail I need to check one by one mail account that in which mail I have received the mail. What if i have 5 mail accounts, in that case I need to check in all the five mail accounts.
I have multiple sub folders below Inbox in Exchange. On exchange server I have rules that move unread emails to allocated folders to keep inbox tidy.
It would be useful if the unread email count could be shown on the sub folders from exchange.
This functionality IS available in iOS Mail functionality, so it CAN be done.

I have rules to move certain emails to folders (to mailing lists/groups). Allows me to focus on Inbox and read emails in folders later. In the iPad app, there is no unread count against folders. That makes it very hard to know which folder has unread email.

When in the mail application, expanding the side bar shows a list of all mail accounts. It would be a nice feature in the collapsed view to show how many unread items each mail account has instead of having to expand each mail account to see the count of unread items.
Also would be nice to be able to re-order the list of accounts in this view.

I'd like to be able to see the unread box for all unread messages from all my folders, not just the inbox. I have several folders and rules where my messages are routed directly to the folder, and without the unread box I have to scroll to each folder to see what messages I received.
Now if I unlock my phone Outlook will send a notification for each email the was received in the meantime rather than just one with the total count. Drives me nuts!
Am I crazy or were they consolidated at one point and then changed to all individual?
It would be great to add a feature that displays the number of unread emails in each respective inbox. That way, you do not have to open each inbox to find where the new email is.

Please add counter to left side mail, for more account non show counter to unread mail
Simon Humphrey commented
Is it possible to have a counter for unread emails in the corner of the app box on the screen to effectively notify new emails rather than having to open the app.

When you have multiple email boxes, it would be hopeful to see the number of unread messages in each mailbox when you are on the menu to choose between your accounts. Very similar to the mail app on iOS.

Badge count for each account!

I just want to add my voice to this feature request. I never look at all email accounts at once. Separating work from personal emails is like a separation of church and state to me. I often want to know how many unread emails I have in a particular account before going into the account itself. Would make a nice quality of life improvement.
In the list of email accounts, it would be great if we could see the total number of new emails in each email account without having to expand the list for each account. As it is, if you have multiple accounts, you have to open each one and scroll through to see the number of new emails in each account.

I use multiple email addresses with Outlook including both personal and business. What I would like to see is individual badges that tells you how many unread emails are in each email address. For example, yahoo would have a 3 next to it, gmail would have a 5 next to it, work will have a 1 next to it....corresponding to the unread emails. The Outlook App would have the combined total.
Also, I would like to be able to rearrange my email addresses instead of them being put in order that I add them.
