Show total number of items in folder (like in desktop Outlook)
In Outlook 2010 and later, users can choose to display the total number of items in each folder (rather than the number of unread items). Please add this feature.
Thank you for your feedback on the Outlook.com beta! We are considering this change and will reply back when we have an update.

When I have to use the browser version I don't like not being able to see the number of emails in my inbox. You used to have this in older versions - bring it back!

I'd like the ability to see how many emails I have in my different folders. Right now I can only see unread emails. I'd like something that shows the total in each folder when I click on the folder.
It should tell you how many total emails are in the current folder, not just how many unread emails.
It would be great if you could bring back what used to be in the old Hotmail.com of a couple of years ago, the "manage folders" feature which showed how many emails in each folder.
Why can't we have total number of emails instead of just unread
