#WinMo what I\’d like in the next Pocket Outlook

Outlook on the road is essential for me, and the search server and OOF setting in Exchange 2007 and WinMo6 were great improvements, but… …with the advent of 100\’s of MB\’s or even GB\’s in the latest phones mean you can realistically keep all your email on the phone. So there are now a number of things missing that really start to hurt:

1. An \’unread messages\’ view on any folder i am viewing. I use rules and subfolders extensively and unread items are \’not yet dealt with\’. But some can be quite old so to scroll down through many emails to find the unread one from last month can take a while. This can be tiresome…

2. An \’all unread emails across all folders\’ that i can sort by date/subject/… as per any other folders – i use this view on Outlook most of the time to keep an eye on incoming mail that will have been moved by rules to subfolders. Without this on the phone i have to keep a mental count of unread emails in key folders when i browse through them.

Please Microsoft!
