    Win10 Mail program - how to have unread emails highlighted?


    Hi,

    I'm trying to work out how to make unread emails more obvious in "Windows 10 Mail". Currently they show up in blue:


    Win10 Mail program - how to have unread emails highlighted? [​IMG]


    Is there a way to make them more obvious? I can see it getting quite confusing as I get a LOT of emails every day. Ideally, I would like a different background colour on the unread emails. Is this possible?

    TIA

    Andy

  2. Taskbar Mail icon continues to show unread mail count after emails are read

    The mail icon in the task bar continues to show unread mail when none present. I have my Hotmail and 2 other personal email accounts in Windows 10 mail app. Sometimes the unread count (number in a circle over the bottom right portion of the mail icon)
    does not clear. After reading unread emails (from the 3 accounts), the unread count over the icon remains. No unread emails are present in Mail. I log into each account via the respective web portal or via Outlook 2016 (for my Hotmail acct) and no unread
    mail is present. The number will remain even into starting Windows 10 the next day, not changing value even though new mail has been received, read and or deleted via other email access (mobile phone).

    UPDATE: While typing this question, I received 1 new email (to my Hotmail acct). A "slide-in" message from the action center displayed a new email received and the number on the icon immediately changed from 5 to 1. Maybe that's the way to clear - leave
    Windows 10 running until a new email is received??? (at the time, the Mail app was NOT running).

    Also, after reading the mail(s) received and shutting down Mail app, the unread count disappears momentarily then re-appears on the icon when the Mail app closes.

    This is no longer a question but more an FYI. This is about how to resolve an apparent bug in the Mail app.

    Read emails on PC display as Unread on Exchange-Server synced Windows Mobile 6.1 device

    I've got my WM6.1 device synchronized to my companys Exchange server, so when at my desk I receive a new mail alert on both my PC and my device.

    If I read the email on my PC in Outlook 2003, the Read/Unread status of the same message remains Unread on my device.

    How can I sync the Read/Unread status of the email to my device so that I don't have "unread" mail on my device that I have already read on my PC?

    Thanks!

    Win10 Mail program - how to have unread emails highlighted?

    If the colour change is not sufficient the next best approach is to select only the unread emails by using the dropdown selector at the top of the Inbox. By default it is set to show all - you can change this to show unread or flagged.

    Mmm yeah I saw that, but it doesn't seem very intuitive :/ It seems like the app is still quite lacking (no HTML signatures for example). Maybe I will just have to keep to my GMail tabs open in Chrome (all 4 of them, which slows down the browser quite a bit)

    Thanks anyway *Smile
