    Default Outlook Webmail - Focused vs Other

    WTF - Why????

    It's like having 2 completely separate inboxes. More mail goes unread because of this dumb feature than what goes unnoticed in my spam folder .

    Now to find out if I can turn the feature off....

    If only there was a device connected to a lot of other devices and some way of searching through what must be a googolplex of pieces of information...

    I wasn't asking, hence the Comment "Now to find out if I can turn the feature off....".

    A little rant. Because it's such a stupid feature.


    Thanks anyway.

    It's turn offable. Are you usng the Outlook web app?

    Go up to the little gear icon to the top right.

    Click on Display Settings

    Then Focused Inbox

    Then select Don't sort messages.

    Click OK and normality is restored
