when this feature will be available ?
First, I want to thank everyone for using the product and sharing with us your feedback.
This is great feedback and we are discussing the need to provide the basic filtering function for Search. We will update once a decision is made.
In the mean time, I’d like to share a temporary solution to ease your pain. It’s a bit more technical so not everyone is going to be comfortable with it. I apologize for that in advance. You can add “isread:no” (without the quotes) after the search term (separate your search term and isread:no with a space) which will filter the search results to show only unread emails.
Thank you for helping us make Outlook.com better!
