In "Mail" view, right click on "Search Folders", and choose "New Search Folder".  When the dialog box opens, select "Unread Mail" and make sure you pick the right mail box at the bottom, then click "OK".

CudaGal,

Use a command line to reset your folders.  at the Start menu, Run command type:

Outlook /resetfoldernames

Do the same command with the switch

Outlook /resetfolders

Occasionally you'll need to use the full path to Outlook, so the command line looks like:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe " /resetfoldernames

If no joy, create one.  Right click on the root folder or Local Folders. Select New and create a folder with the name Unread Email.
