OK, so I have been mucking around with Outlook.com as part of a possible move to Windows Phone as the new Nokia phones, 720 for me it looks like, seem to have it over Android at the moment. 

Some of Outlook.com I really love, the interface is great. 

I can find a way to easily sort unread messages. I hate everything being mixed up in my inbox so I have folders for everything which is great but sometimes I want to review my unread mail from all the folders so I know I haven't missed anything. 

In Gmail you just type 'unread' in the search bar at the top, in Outlook.com you ... ? 

Please don't tell me MS left out included this functionality. 




Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

Not there as far as I can see. The folders with unread emails do show a number counter though on the left hand side so you can go folder by folder and sort sort the unread emails. Could be annoying if you have many folders.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Manage Categories (get to this by right clicking, bottom left under "Quick views")
tick the "Unread" Quick View, under Outlook categories
now will be a Unread link the bottom of your main Outlook.com page, bottom left under "Quick views"

Thanks nathan. I was trying to add the Unread quickview/category after reading this thread and it kept saying that it already exists. Was wondering where it's hiding then.

Another question, this time about the calendar.

My Outlook.com account is linked to my Facebook account but event invitations I accept in Facebook don't appear, birthdays do which is nice.

Anybody know what I am doing wrong or how to sync these?

Thanks.
