Focused inbox for Outlook.com
Enable Focused Inbox for Outlook.com Email Accounts
Tony Wong commented
I am on MAC using Outlook program. The focused Inbox worked at first, but somewhere along the way it stopped working, All my other accounts have focused inbox, but my hotmail/outlook stopped having the feature. When I log on the online web browser version, my focused inbox is working there. It is not working on the Mac Outlook Program.

This gets my vote as well. Disappointing that as an outlook.com email user, I can't access this on my Mac, yet it's available for gmail users. The lack of a focussed inbox is a major negative for a paid service. Please rectify this ASAP!

I just migrated from using a Gmail address to an Outlook email address and the use of Office 365 on Mac instead of checking emails on gmail.com.
Turns out that focussed inbox in Outlook 365 for Mac works only for Gmail accounts but not for an Outlook email address.
It's incredibly hard to deal with an un-focussed inbox of my Outlook email address on Office 365 for Mac.
Because gmail users on Office 365 for Mac do get a focussed inbox, and Outlook emails on Office 365 for Mac do not, Outlook email addressed appear to be a second class citizen. Outlook email users have to work through the clutter of a un-focussed inbox, every day, everytime.
Please make focussed inbox for Outlook email addressed available ASAP.
The lack of this feature will causes resistance by those who use Outlook email address to migrate to Office 365 for Mac.
Additionally, please make Office 365 for Mac a first class citizen by bringing feature parity (other features) with Office 365 for PC.

Please add this feature asap! As it is available for Outlook iOS as well.
Need this feature
This is obviously not a feature, its a serious bug. Your apps are not consistent, this feature is available in Windows, Web, IOS but not macOS????

Come on Microsoft why is this taking so long? I pay for my M365 Family account and it doesn't work with it, yet my Gmail works fine.
It would be great to have for outlook.com mail box the ability to get priority and others emails at its stands for iPhone and mailbox in the web.
Another vote for fixing this bug.

would appreciate adding the FOCUSED feature for Outlook.com accounts in mac which is available on both IOS and Windows but only Mac lacks it.
Dude common, hire some contractors make it done ASAP, during these recession times they'll work had to keep jobs :D lol just kidding but seriously release this feature soon
I am a Microsoft CSP and IT Consultant and only recently acquired my first iMac only to stumble into this annoying, unresolved issue.
I started hunting online for a solution, found thousands of other posts regarding this and then had a rant to a Microsoft support contact via chat in Outlook on my Mac, he directed me to this page...
I, like many other people, pay a subscription for a personal Office 365 account and have the Focused Inbox feature on my Windows PC, Any browser, even in the iOS app - in fact... my iOS app even sorts the IMAP email accounts into Focused & Other in "All Account" and the individual inboxes... but not on a iMac!
Microsoft, please invest some time into this, you have paying customers who use Mac too!
I've had to search blogs, youtube videos and ultimately reach out to the support team to find out that this feature isn't available. Very disappointed that Microsoft forgot such a key feature on their app for Mac users that helps tremendously in todays busy inbox schedules.
PLEASE CAN YOU HAVE THIS FEATURE ADDED ASAP!
Why Microsoft doesn't fix this function for years? Focused inbox helped me a lot so I really wish I can use it in Mac.

Why is this feature available on Windows, on the web, and on Mac for Business Outlook accounts, but not for personal accounts?
Huh, the feature is there for business users already but not for outlook.com? odd.

I echo everyones comments below!! Please get this beloved feature installed already!!
Focussed inbox need to be added to outlook for mac! dont be money grabbers guys! just give the people the version of outlook we all know and love!

Focused Inbox needs adding to MacOS for @outlook.com users. Why is it taking so long? People use multiple devices and having this disparity is confusing, not to mention how it works for GMail which is free.
