    Now that Windows Live Mail 2012 is now on death row, I've successfully added my three Hotmail accounts to my Outlook 2013 client.

    When one opens WLM, an indicator appears beside each account to show the number of new emails for the particular account.

    This doesn't appear to happen in Outlook 2013 - anyone know how this can be done - it would save having to open each account in turn to see if emails are present.

    I have never seen that option and I have been using Outlook since Outlook 95.

    I feared that would be the case. It would be a handy improvement.

    I do not use a separate pst for each email account. I like having them all in one pst and do not have any problem with them all mixed in the listing.

    Until now, I'd assumed all five of my accounts would automatically be in the one pst.

    On the newer versions of Outlook (2016) the default is a new PST for each email account.
