Default Outlook 2010 Inbox notification

I'm sure it's just a setting somewhere that I've not yet found...



I have Outlook 2k10 checking 7-8 POP email accounts. Each email account is indicated in the navigation pane on the left. When the separate accounts are minimized in the navigation pane all I see is the email account. There is no indication that there are new emails unless you expand that particular account.

Also, in the top of the navigation pane there's an icon for the inbox but that seems to be only for the primary email account.

Here's what I'd like. Perhaps it's not possible but hopefully, it's just a setting thing.

Is there a way to have each minimized account in the navigation pane indicate for that account whether or not there are any new emails without expanding the account?

Is there a way to have ALL new emails for ALL accounts be indicated in a global inbox?

What I'd like to see is whether or not there are any new emails by just glancing at the navigation pane.

To answer some of your questions;

1) Is there a way to have each minimized account in the navigation pane indicate for that account whether or not there are any new emails without expanding the account?

A) Try creating a rule that will alert you when an email arrives.

2) Is there a way to have ALL new emails for ALL accounts be indicated in a global inbox?

A) This cannot be done. Microsfot has indented this, since you connecting to multiple accounts each would need its own default folders.

3) What I'd like to see is whether or not there are any new emails by just glancing at the navigation pane.

a) Since no option exists to have the account name display the inbox number, you might want to add each inbox as a favorite. The inboxes will them be located under favorites.

Hope some of this information was found helpful.

Very helpful. Those are the things I've done. It's just that the way I use Outlook needs to change I guess. Previously I only had to check one Inbox, empty one Sent and Deleted Items folder, and manage one Junk folder. I had to maintain and compact only one data file.

Now I need to do seven separately. I can see benefits to the new layout but I'll have to get used to 'the new way'.
