Get rid of "Focused"
Focused inbox is not useful. Focused inbox has been putting too many items into the Other. Get rid of it!

We have some good news! You can actually turn the Focused inbox feature off and on as you wish. To do so:
1. Go to settings in the top right corner of your screen. On the next screen,look in the left panel.
2.Scroll down until you see a heading titled Layout.
3.Listed under layout you should see an option for Focused Inbox.
After you’ve clicked on Focused Inbox you will be given the option to “sort messages into Focused and Other” or “Don’t sort messages”.
4.After selecting one of these options make sure to click the save button at the top of your screen then click options on the top left to return to your updated inbox.

I really don't like how my inbox is split between "Focused" and "Other". It more clicking to get to my messages and when I tell Outlook to move something from a sender to "Focused" it doesn't always work. I want just one inbox.
PERMANENTLY ELIMINATE that damned "OTHER" INBOX!
Way too many e-mails are going there that USED to be in my FOCUSED INBOX.
I do NOT want ANYTHING in my OTHER INBOX, ever!
Do not separate inbox. I like to see all inbox st same time
Paula Chessher commented
I prefer ONE inbox -
rather than focused and other!
Please adjust mine so that I have only one set to review!
Please get rid of this ridiculous 'other' inbox - I am sick to death of having to go through TWO inboxes when I could much more easily go through one ...
I really don't like my mail being split into "Focused" and "Other". What does that even mean? Put them all together, please, and I'll decide how to separate my mail.
I see Focused and Other. I would rather see Inbox or nothing.
how do I get rid of the "Focused" and "other" email lists????\
this feature SUCKS and I don't want to have to manage 2 email lists

Terrible feature, who thought it would be a good idea to implement something that's so broken to being with?
PLEASE GET RID OF THE FOCUSED INBOX ITS SO ANNOYING!!

STOP IT :(
just makes it harder to filter emails

PLEASE!!! Get rid of this Focused / Other email feature ... it is very inconvenient and inconsistent placing needed email in Other that I need in Focused ... I don't like this feature and would love to see it gone or a least be able to OPT OUT
there is some other bug happening. I regularly have emails go missing, that can't be seen when the focused is on, or the other is on. And i can only see the email by searching them. This is not a junk mail issue - it's the massively STUPID algorithm used for focused / other.
This applies to outlook like (online hotmail) and the windows 2016 Mail program.
Pls make emails work the way they used to. STOP OVER-ENGINEERING THINGS COZ YOU GET BORED AND WANT TO INNOVATE.
what is going on ? why do I have two inboxes ? I don't want two Inboxes. Cant you people leave stuff alone ? I didn't ask anyone to change my account . did you somehow get my permission to change whatever you like ? this sucks .

If you have a new idea which is going to let me choose between the new option and the old option, tell me about it. Then, if I think it is a good idea, I will turn it on. If I do not, I will not turn it on.
DO NOT TURN IT ON FOR ME WITHOUT TELLING ME THAT YOU ARE GOING TO TURN IT ON, CONSEQUENTLY CAUSING ME TO MISS EMAILS UNTIL I FIND OUT WHAT THE F*** YOU HAVE DONE, YOU STUPID, FILTHY SHEEP-C***-F***ING REPREHENSIBLE INCESTUOUS PAEDOPHILE SCUM
For the love of god please get rid of the stupid 'Other' and 'Focused' tabs!!!!
