Color code inbox emails from friends, families, etc. See how Entourage does this.
Get rid of "FOCUSED OTHER" feature. Half the time they disappear for days. If I don't open a FOCUSED message first, I lose all of them. Just gone when I read another email and return to the inbox. It's a feature FULL of glitches and really annoying.
How do I remove the "focused" and "other" catagories on the email and just list all emails?
How do I get rid of this focused and other in box and just have an in box again?
I do not like the new version of Hotmail (Focused).

I do not need to seperate my comming e-mails into two part "Focused" and "Other". How can I deactivate it?
focused app sucks. dont need it. junk. thats what filter is for.. burning up my processor.
The focused inbox is really annoying, it should be an option, not mandatory.
Have I told you lately how much I think the focused feature sucks. it is useless, cumbersome, and unnecessary.

I don't want Focused and Other - just everything except Junk in my inbox. How do I get rid of this split?
Get rid of the focused nonsense; it just adds an unnecessary step! The only thing it focuses is a case of the red ***!
