Display Number of Messages in a Folder
Need number of items that are in each folder
[Deleted User] commented
Is this a joke? Our office switch to OWA and now I find out this feature does not exist and was requested all those years and is still not available? What a shame, welcome in 2020.
It would be nice to know how many messages I have in my inbox. I try to keep my inbox around a certain number and it's hard to tell how many there really are or when that number gets too high. And no, I refuse to count them by hand; it's 2020! Add this feature back please.

Seriously, no action on a 5 year old request for a simple feature request to return functionality that existed in the old OWA we app?
Yes, this is a required feature
Please implement this. I am currently a contingent employee who can only use OWA in the office, and my supervisor counts emails received and sent each month. I've been unable to follow up for her. I just recently got a license to the proper app for the office, but I can't import my profile from OWA to the Outlook app... Issues stacked ontop of issues...
4.5 years and close to 400 votes and this feature has still not been implemented?!
I feel like even I code write that code to count messages in a single folder...
Could MS please make a statement if you're even looking into this?
both to compare is important on migration as well.
This would be a really useful feature to help manage the day job please add to the backlog with a suitable priority......

Very much needed!

It is a much needed feature to be added to OWA. As users, it is convenient to have the ability to switch between unread and all items count for all the folders in a mailbox.
Why the need to change everything every version... Is there some people who sit there in the middle of a busy working day who go "/oh I am glad that I have to trawl the internet for 2 hours to find how to do something that the old version did automatically... Where are these people..

It would be very helpful to know how many items are in in-place archive folders. Currently, when items are moved by copying, moving, or by means of a policy, one cannot tell how many items were moved.
Agree with previous comments. Don't like the new look of right justified email count or the mono-chrome look of the navigation option icons. Please let us know how to revert.

I agree with the Writer who commented on the unannounced change to right justify the number of unread messages instead of having the number next to the folder name as it has always been. I don't like it. Is there a way to change that back?
The Writer commented
As of this AM (6/3/2019) the unread item count in each folder is no longer next to the folder name but is now Right Justified. Why? This is not a good basic system change and should never have been snuck in on users. How do we undo.
Some folders show the number of items inside but the smart folders don't. Display Number of Messages in a Folder, Need number of items that are in each folder

"Me" has the right answer, but it seems stupid that you have to do this.
Hey, if you want to count the number of messages in the Sent folder, for example, just select all the messages, then Unselect one message and then you will see the number of messages selected minus 1. I did this using the browser, not the outlook client software.

When navigating through the different folders, display the number of items it contains.
In my Outlook for Mac (which is 365) there is a message count at the very bottom left hand stripe of the Outlook window (where you see the notification that sync is pending, etc.) It will tell you how many messages are in whatever folder you're highlighting. Took me forever to find it by accident while doing the 'select all' and 'mark read/unread'
