    unsure of what your aasking...

    do you mean you want more emails to show in the counter? if so, i know a great site...you put in your e-mail address and BAM! 400967323 emails a day arrive!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    seriously now, i'm assuming you mean when you open your inbox, only so many messages appear, and the rest are not there, even tho you know there are more.

    there are 2 solutions, 1 easy, which you probably know about, the second i need more info about to advise you:

    solution1: look near the bottom of the screen, you should see a link with the word 'next 1, 2,3,'
    simply click the word 'next' to display the other messages.

    if this is too simple a solution for you, then please post back with more details, such as:

    how many messages can you see now?
    how many would you like to see?

    let us know, and we'll dig deeper for you...

    Default Help with MSN hotmail live inbox

    Sorry I wasn't more clear. Yes, I can see the numbers at the bottom and can get to all those other emails. What I'd like to do is take my current view of 25 emails and change it to 100 or even 200, so I can scroll down quickly to see which emails to delete or put in folders rather than go page by page. Is there any way to do this? thanks.

    good news...you can!!!

    If you open your mailbox, and look to the right, you will see a link marked 'options'

    click that, then click Mail Display Settings.

    the option is the first one i believe, but unfortunatly the max is 100 i believe!

    let us know if problem is resolved.

    This used to be the case under Old Hotmail, but I can't find a way to change the number of messages per page under Windows Mail Live. Under Options, it has "Customize Your Mail" but that only gives you:

    Choose a theme
    Select language
    Personal e-mail signature
    Save sent messages
    Automatically sort e-mail into folders
    Reply-to address
    Mobile alerts for new messages
    Today page settings
    Customize your contacts
    Please help!

    This is a Microsoft program, no body here can change it, if the option is not offered.

    Boy, you must get a lot of emails a day :wink:

    I've recently been upgraded to the new 5GB Windows Live Hotmail without having asked for it.

    In some ways this is good, since I had exceeded 5000 messages in my account and could no longer sort my folders.

    On the other, I have lost some of the options I used to have like number of messages per page.

    Any else having the same problem?

    If you have Outlook installed, you can install Outlook connector.

    This will allow you to sync outlook with MSN/Hotmail accounts and view then through Outlook.
