Down in Outlook's status bar, on the left-hand side, it shows "Items:275 Unread: 75". Not sure why one would need to change default folder view.
I'm a firm believer in using what works and not making more work for myself than I need, but here's the difference -- the status bar shows statistics for the current folder. If that's all you need, that's great. But, if you want a fuller picture at a glance, or you want the figure for a folder that isn't selected, you'll need this tip.
I love the 6654 messages sitting in the "Deleted Items" folder!!! It cracks me up when users store emails in the trash!!
