Windows 10: Mail App email count

    Mail App email count


    Is there a way to see an email count in the mail app? For example, when I'm in my inbox, how can I tell the total number of email in the inbox. I've just switched from Windows Live Mail (which is being depreciated) which had a count on the bottom pane.

    I don't know if this will answer your question as I do not use Mail app for emailing. I use WLM.

    Will the screenshot below answer your question ?
    The number 3 circled in red represents how many mails are in the inbox.

    davidhk, thank you for the response. I'm actually looking for the total number of emails in my inbox vs unread mail which is what your screeenshot shows.

    Not sure with the Mail app but many lists such as files in File Explorer or messages in Outlook.com have a choice of showing a box at the left end that can be checked, checking all of them usually shows a total of those with the checkmarks, Outlook.com shows the number checked at the top of the list while File Explorer shows it in the bar at the bottom..

    The screenshot above is from Outlook.com
    I'm referring to the number circled in red that shows the total number of emails in my inbox regardless of its read status.
    I'm hoping the mail app can display this information.

    Nope, Mail app - currently it does not, nor has the capability to do so.

    I suggest the smiley face feedback button, which has been used countless (I love puns) times to report/request that feature.
