In Outlook 2007 on and Exchange server, I want the unread message search folder to only show unread messages in the inbox, not subfolders. It seems that if you check the inbox, it will also show unread messages in all sub folders even if they are not checked. Is this  bug or am I missing something

If you right-click Unread Mail, select "Customize Search Folder", then click the Browse button at the bottom, you should see a list of folders to search for Unread Mail.  At the bottom is a tick box for "search subfolders" which you need to untick.
