    I have just upgraded from Outlook 2010 to 2016 and the removal of this feature was the most obvious real deficiency. I have ten email accounts each with many subfolders, and rules set up to segregate incoming email into them. I now have to scan each folder looking for new items; previously any folder with a new item was clearly obvious but now it isn't. It it a trivial job for the development team to put it back - perhaps with a user-definable colour set in Folder Options to distinguish it from the bold setting for the 'currently selected folder'

    I have long wanted a similar feature for synching with an Access database of contacts

    It has always seems bizarre that the user could amend the displayed mailbox names for POP and IMAP accounts but not Exchange ones also - except by using MFCMAPI which is definitely NOT a tool for users . And now for the Outlook 2016 update to prevent even MFCMAPI changes is totally unacceptable. I just hope it was a developers error and not 'by design'!

    One would think that it was a common requirement within a O365 Exchange tenant and especially within a domain name. MSFT has long provided the facility to share contact folders but then emasculates a most useful feature by not providing an out-of-profile 'virtual address book' workaround.
