  • Hi,

    This feature has been completely removed in Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016. There is no option available to get it back currently.

    I'd recommend you submit a feedback to the product team via the UserVoice forum. The team will consider whether to change the behavior according to customer needs. Thank you for your understanding.

    Regards,

    Steve Fan

  • Sorry for the delay. You may try to click the folder you want Outlook to display the size, go to View tab > View Settings, click Columns button. Drag and drop the 'Size' field to the top of the list on the right side pane. Click OK. See if this is what you want. If so, you can do the same steps on other mail folders.

    Hope this helps.
