Why the **** was it even added? This has to be the stupidest idea known to man. I guarantee everyone sees it then instantly turns it off, to be forgotten forever.

Get rid of focused inbox, or make it off by default. It is garbage and annoying as **** when it gets turned back on after an update.

It really does suck takes forever to load, freezes constantly, take forever to use functions there is nothing about this that I like. I am going back to Outlook 2007 which actually works
The Focused inbox is a terrible idea that will cause millions of people to miss important emails. The fact that this is enabled by default is mind blowing. How about allowing people to pick which emails they want to be in the focused folder, but still include ALL emails in the main inbox and not just "Focused" and "Other". The inconvenience of having to manage two separate folders instead of just one inbox is not good. People who desire this feature already know, or can quickly learn, how to use custom rules. I was also shocked how difficult it was to find the switch to disable this ridiculous feature. It is buried in the settings menu, and even microsoft support says the switch is in a different folder.
"Focused" inbox has to be the stupidest idea ever. Do people get paid to make things worse? Incredible! If it isn't broke, don't fix it AND especially don't make it worse! Whoever came up with this idea should be shot
I cannot wrap my head around the idea of what criteria is being used for this so called "focused" inbox. It seems as though all the focus goes into autoresponses and notifications-- the things I want to IGNORE.
Big fail, Microdorks!
Focus inbox just made me miss important emails without me even knowing it. Nice job Microsoft!
Try to remember this old saying; "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

I don't like the focused or other in email. Just email in order like it was.

I hate the focused/other tabs
They're confusing me and I feel that my emails are scattered
I hate this new outlook mail format. "Focused, Other" WTH???? Who cares and why was this forced on us? Sandra Meyer

I like the new Focused Inbox. How about email "Snoozing" like Spark and other companies provide?
On my Outlook Mail, PLEASE, get rid of that annoying FOCUSED Other.
Michael Goss commented
Other/Focused Inbox Sucks
The Other vs Focused Inbox is just annoying as ****. If I delete everything in the "Other" view I have to click back to Focused, then back to Other to see the messages that didn't get deleted. It is also confusing anyway and doesn't solve an actual problem, it creates more work if anything
Everyone I knows hates the new focused and other inbox. Hope it would be discontinued and reverted back to just one regular inbox.
"focused" just another step in the process to look at MY emails!!!!
how can i remove this unwanted step
Hiow do I get rid of "Focused" email. The split is total rubbish!
