Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Declutter your inbox (Office 365 only), part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] Our Inbox is a mix…of messages that are critical,…messages that are important,…messages that are interesting,…and messages that we really don't read at all.…I have messages that I keep around for a rainy day,…but that rainy day never seems to come.…In Outlook 2016 for Windows there's a new feature…that's called Clutter,…which helps us out by filtering out…those low-priority emails, my rainy day emails,…and putting them in a folder called Clutter.…
So they're not distracting me.…And that lets me focus on my important email messages.…The way this works is, Microsoft Exchange server,…which is the Post Office for your Outlook Inbox,…keeps track of what emails you routinely don't read,…and who they're from.…And once you turn it on,…Clutter creates a Clutter folder,…and moves the types of messages…that you're less likely to read…to that folder.…So, it's not the same as ignoring conversations,…it's not even the same as Mailbox Clean-up.…
It's a brand new feature.…And the more you use it,…the better decisions it makes.…
