More -Iím organizing my emails in various subfolders which have subfolders of its own again. In addition, Iím using rules to move messages to their corresponding folder. Usually I keep this folder structure collapsed but then I canít see if a message arrived in any of these subfolders.
Is there a way to make the parent folder show the combined amount of unread items in any of the subfolders?
