Wouldn't it be nice if you could, for a while, hide all messages you have already seen and concentrate on the unread emails?
See Unread Mail Only in Windows Mail or Outlook Express
To hide all read mail in Windows Mail or Outlook Express:
- Select View | Current View | Hide Read Messages from the menu.
To restore normal display that shows all emails, select View | Current View | Show All Messages from the menu.
For either action, you can also use the Views Bar, which appears alongside the main Windows Mail toolbar. To enable it,
- select View | Layout... from the menu and
- make sure Views Bar is checked.
