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.
I have a feeling this is as accurate as it goes
Outlook program manager: i want to change the position of the unread e-mail count.
Outlook engineer: why no one has asked for this to be changed and is a waste of our time.
Outlook program manager: Just do it.
Change the position back as to read the unread messages is now
1. annoying as i multiple length named folder and this now make it hard to see which ones have e-mail
2. add an option so the end user can change this is if they so wish

This makes it hard to read. It appeared like this some time ago but then quickly disappeared. It needs to disappear again, quickly please

Really MS, no option? I concur, I can quickly scan my folders for new mail as I keep some unread and now its not easy unless I move the right justified column closer which cuts off my folder names.... Stop trying to be Apple....I don't use Apple products because "they" force you how you should use the software....
I agree - 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 revert this feature so that the number of unread emails is displayed next to folder name as it was in previous versions. Current style is so confusing
John Willems commented
I just got the update. THIS IS TERRIBLE!
Best advice seems to be to rename all your folders to be the same width and shrink the pane to match. So stupid.
This change is madness, please revert back!

Please please fix this, this is inconveniencing me, it is so hard to tell which inbox has the unread emails.
This is the worst ******** chance I've ever seen. Why does Microsoft keep breaking things that aren't broken?!?!?!?
Brad Knutson commented
One wouldn't think this change would be that big of a deal but, it was the first thing that screamed out to me after the update. I would like to see it back the old way or at least have an option.
Michael Beatty commented
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.
Steve McCunn commented
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
Jaswinder Ghuman commented
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!
Richard Kelters commented
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."
