Unread Email Count - Move it back!
I hate that the new unread email count for any box is aligned to the right. I cannot find anything online on how to fix this. PLEASE change this back or at least give the user the ability to determine if they want the count number next to the folder name or aligned differently.

Please make it an option to few it next to the folder name. I have multiple folder names that are longer than others so it is difficult to tell how many unread emails are in what folder.

The right-justified position of the unread email count does not stand out like it did before. As a result, many unread emails are overlooked for a greater period of time. Please consider moving it back...change for change sake is not progress!
There are times when you have to gird your loins and admit that a change was not beneficial. This is one of those times.
It is painful in identifying the count to which it is belongs to. User should be able to align based on his/her wish. Please revert it if it is not possible.
AGILE has struck again - Actually Gravely Illogical Lousy E-ideas.
No-one asked for this, no-one wanted this, no-one finds this change to be of benefit. Revert it back to the old look.
Please move the number back next to the folder
The change to justify to the right the count of unread messages along the right edge of the frame prevents you from seeing correctly if you have many folders

This requires the eyes to work harder to align the unread email count with the relative folder.
This is definitely not an improvement. I suggest you re-review Eye-Tracking Heatmap please.
Please move the unread email number back next to the folder name. Right justified is not ok!

I vote to move it back too!
"Not only is the number of unread aligned to the right (which makes it harder to see to which folder the number belongs). It took me a while to find out that the reply, reply all, forward as well as the discard and pop out buttons above the email preview are aligned to the right, especially on large screens this changed gave me the impression that they've been deleted."

Please charge back, and please do not take away any feature at anytime without user engagement. We are paying for stable service, not paying for Google like "beta" service. That's the value of Microsoft, please keep it this way.

At first I thought it would be fine, but I just realized how much eye movement I had in a quick scan through my folder list. So, after giving it a chance, I have to say I'd prefer to have it back behind the folder name.
Please don't just decide to change what has been working for 20 years and then don't give options to choice! I have a hard find moving my eyes back and forth to focus to see which one of all my folders is aligning to which number far away. It is very user hostile. Move it back close the the folder name where it belongs so you don't need to move eyes back and forth. If my folder name is "too" long it is better in fact, but I don't want to pad my folder names with aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa prefix or something just to manually align the numbers on the right side.
Its because your folder name is too long !
Far right aligned to box is way better to show at a glance the unread message

Agreed!!! The change to right-justify the unread message count to along the frame's right edge leaves a WIDE!!!!! gap between folder name & count.

Agreed!!! Shifting the unread message count to be right-aligned to the frame edge leaves a HUGE!!! gap between folder name & count.
