  1. Can the Mail Live Tile simply show the number of unread e-mails?


    Hi,

    This Mail Live Tile problem has bugged me for years... Unlike my phone icon which shows a number indicating the number of unread e-mails in my inbox (very straightforward), this Window app seems to insist on showing the number of newly arrived and unread e-mails since I last opened the app.

    So I did a little experiment:

    If I open one of the newly arrived e-mails with another device (thus making it 'read'), the live tile count will in fact decrease by 1.

    But then I open another unread e-mail with that same device, but this e-mail has already arrived last time I used the Windows Mail app (are you still with me?), this time the live tile count remains unchanged.

    Very confusing if u ask me. Can I do anything to let the live tile simply show the total number of unread e-mails period?

    :)

  2. My Win Phone 7 Hotmail Tile is NOT accurate.

    I think that's by design, just to show you the number of e-mails that you received since the last time you looked.



    On the flip side of that if it truly showed the number of unread e-mails the tile would have to show a 4 digit number for me Can the Mail Live Tile simply show the number of unread e-mails? :) (you can accumulate a lot of unread e-mail over a decade).

    Unread mail in folders do not show up on the hub

    This is a known issue though. It may be by design however. What you can do is pin the folder to your start screen and the number of unread mail should show up on the Live Tile.

    Can the Mail Live Tile simply show the number of unread e-mails?

    I use, a) Notification area previews, b) Badges on the Mail Task Bar Icon, c) Live tiles for each Mail Account separately, d) a combined Live tile for all Accounts.
    There are inconsistencies amongst that lot, using just one Laptop to access, no idea why. Does not surprise me, been using the Mail App for 4 years (that's around an estimated 100-200 updates).
