Advanced Find Item Count in MS Outlook 2010

One of our customers recently upgraded from Office 2k3 to Office 2010.
They have since reported a loss of functionality.

In Outlook 2003, performing an advanced find with XX criteria would reveal a count of results in the status bar.
 Message count in bottom left
In Outlook 2010 Advanced find is depreciated, however still there, but it appears to have lost its Status bar, hence we cannot see the amount of items returned.

 No message count!
I have tried to make a work around with Windows 7 Search, and whilst I can get close to what the customer wants its not quite right.

Does anyone know how to enable the status bar in 2010 to show this? or perhaps some other way of replicating this functionality.

Thanks.

Rather than an advanced find, why not setup a New Search Folder?  You can even mark it as a favourite folder.  Change the criteria for the search so that the timescale is the last 7 days and that it only searches the Sent Items folder.

Then, when your user clicks on this folder, the Outlook status bar will display the message count.  This will be quicker than running a find.

Nice workaround.
Looks like it will work a treat, just define custom requirements when needed.
