Having searched the user guide, admin guide, forum and wiki, I am still unable to find a way to get a count of all messages in each folder from the web client.
Did I miss something?
Regards,

The server maintains a count of the number of items (messages+contacts+documents+etc...) in each folder, but I don't believe this count is surfaced in the web UI at present. If you'd really like to see this, please file a request in bugzilla!

I noticed in the webclient, int he upper right hand corner, you see a number (like 1-24) which just tells you which group of 25 messages you are viewing, but doesn't mention how any total messages there are. I'd like to see something like it saying "1-24 of 156"

Yes, this would definitely be a big deal. As well, it would be extremely nice to be able to perform actions on all messages in a sub-directory.
Select all and move, or even when one right clicks, a menu item of "use filter on this directory". That way, someone could setup a filter and force it to run on a folder...
Zimbra is just about the best web client I've seen.. it rivals quite a few "normal" clients. It does have these two things missing however.

That looks great. There's quite a bit of room on that bar, so I don't think the extra width will look bad or interfere with anything.
The only complaint that some users may level is that the arrow buttons may be "too far apart", but I don't think that's an issue from where I sit.

I just wanted to add something. The reason why the "select all messages in a folder" and "run filter on selected messages" is important, is because of simple user error.
I can imagine a world where users accidentally remove tags on messages, or have a large message store and want to add new tags to some of those messages. With "select all" and "run filter on all selected" as an option, users could retroactively untag, retag, move messages at a whim.
In fact, the ultimate would be to also have a 'dynamic' filter that one can program on the fly. That is, imagine a "select all" and then a dynamic filter being written to move all old messages into a "2006" folder. You'd never use that filter again, so you wouldn't want to make and then delete it...
(note: with "select all" above, I'm basically referring to "select all messages in folder"....)

Hmm, I've just looked at Zimbra's "search" options. That's quite an excellent search system. If one could click a "do action to found messages", then what I mention above would be complete!

I know the discussion has moved on-but you can now also mouse over the folders to see an item count & the total size of the folder
