What is the Focused Inbox feature?

Focused Inbox is a new feature that gives you 2 separate views of your Inbox:

  • Focused – shows your most important messages
  • Other – shows all other messages

This feature is already available in Outlook mobile clients and being rolled out to OWA and Outlook 2016 desktop clients in Q1 2017.  Note: Microsoft has delayed the rollout from it’s initial target of November 2016.) This feature replaces the Clutter feature that you may have been using.
