Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing unread messages, part of Outlook 2007: Effective Email Management.
A number of the messages in this Inbox have something in common.…They're marked as unread.…Either you haven't looked at them at all, or they've been examined and then…marked as unread after having actually been read.…In either event, it's useful to be able to go look at only the unread messages…in a folder and then work with that set of messages.…It's an efficient way to go through your Inbox when you've been out of the…office or at the start of the workweek.…So let's switch views.…
On the Advanced toolbar, we're going to choose Unread Messages in This Folder.…Outlook quickly filters all of the messages and finds simply those messages in…the folder that haven't yet been read.…This is a quasi-dynamic view, because if I go open a message now and read it…and then close it, it will remain in this view.…You'd think it would automatically go away because it no longer meets that filter…of unread messages, but in fact, the filter is applied at two different times,…when I switch to this filter view or when I switch from another application…
