I fully agree with this request!
The Classic view always highlighted folders in the left-hand folder list which contained unread messages, and also showed a count. There have been many user requests for this to be reinstated, so WHY has it not been done already?
Sometimes legitimate e-mails are incorrectly sent to the Spam folder (or are moved to another folder or Trash either by filters or inadvertently). It should NOT be necessary to hover the mouse over each folder or open each one to check for unread messages.
So PLEASE modify the folder list to make it clear which folders contain unread messages, in particular the Spam and Trash folders. Removing this functionality that was present in the Classic view is a COMPLETELY BACKWARDS STEP IN USABILITY!
I have more than 3 decades of experience in the IT industry, and the removal of the unread message indications is a prime example of ill-considered poor design, without any consideration of the user experience!Simon Ho supported this idea ·
