Sieghard, the original post was asking about Thunderbird.

It works perfectly fine for me in Jaws 18 both using Windows 7 and
Windows 10 with Outlook 2016 via Office 365 download.
Make sure you don't have an update window hiding this, this has happened
before and there is no way at all for Jaws to access this window, you
really would need a sighted person taking a look.

I repeat, pressing insert plus num pad 3 reads number of messages in
folders, but only in 2018 version of JAWS.  They broke it in JAWS 18 and
somewhere along the way before.

Press the Insert Key on the Num Lock and the Page Down or 3 on the

addressed a problem I had, they fixed that without me even mentioning
the issue. I was really glad.

Best from,

I have found that the best way for me to get the information you are
asking for is to highlight the folder you want and then use the touch
cursor to read the information.

First, start the touch cursor by pressing shift plus the numpad plus
Go to the bottom of the screen by pressing control plus end.
Now, use your left arrow and move back until you read all of the
information you want.  You may need to move as much as four or five
times to get all information.
When finished, press the numpad plus twice (quickly) to get back to
standard mode.
