    Need a button to say, show me all unread messages regardless of folder. On the desktop it's very easy to see all unread messages because they light up and are visible whether in the inbox or they pushed to some folder within the inbox (like, voicemail or newsletters). But these are far too easy to miss on iPad or iPhone. Often, there is no sign of an unread email in a subfolder until you click that folder to check. This is fine for a couple folders but becomes unusable with more than a handful of subfolders (with rules-based pushing to such subfolders). To use an example, my voicemail pushes to a subfolder within Outlook but it's way too hard to see new messages within.

    Let's say I have 30 folders within my inbox. I certainly don't want to open more than a few, to see new emails. Why not all unread emails in one place when I hit inbox + unread? I can't make my iPhone + Outlook do that "simple, essential" thing. I had that on my Android (via Touchdown email); and it is hard to do without it. I know this site says this feature is completed, but I can't find it and other sites say Outlook on iPhone has no unified inbox. Currently, this feels so broken that not only can I not look through new emails easily -- I don't even know they are there (without clicking on each folder and waiting for it to sync). Maybe I am doing it wrong? I have called Microsoft tech support several times and I am pretty sure they have no idea what I am talking about (last week they told me to use the OWA app instead of the Outlook app., and once again, I see no sign of a unified inbox).
