Office 365 email feature - Focused Inbox

Focused Inbox is a new feature in Office 365 email to help manage your inbox. It separates your inbox into two tabs—Focused and Other. Your most important emails are on the Focused tab while the rest remain easily accessible—but out of the way—on the Other tab.

 

Focused Inbox makes it easier for you to stay on top of incoming email without having to visit another folder. You can easily switch between tabs at any time to take a quick look.

 

To turn the Focused Inbox feature On

 

  1. Open your Outlook 2016 client and click on the View tab. (If you do not see this feature, then it is not available in your version of Outlook.)
  1. Select Show Focused Inbox.

The Focused and Other tabs will appear at the top of your mailbox. You’ll be informed about email flowing to Other, and you can switch between tabs any time to take a quick look.
