    Yeah, it's weird that this needs to be a uservoice request.

    It was fine and all of a sudden it disappeared. All those junk, advertising jump into my email and sent out notifications which it really annoying and not efficient. WHY WE CANT HAVE FOCUSED INBOX ON MACBOOK? PLEASE ADD IT BACK IN YOUR NEXT UPDATE. MUCH APPRECIATED.

    Yes! This must be fixed. I use outlook on my IOS (iphone/ipad) and the focused inbox feature is available. I was completely stunned to find out that it is not available on my newly purchased MacBook. And as previous people commented, my gmail account does have this feature. I agree with previous post, very important feature and very frustrating to not have it.

    Why does this not work? Most important feature to me! Will likely change my email address if this is not changed. It is soooo fustrating

    When my organization migrated to Exchange, I decided to try Outlook on Android. Discovered and immediately fell in love with the focused inbox.
    Loaded outlook on my Mac *specifically* for that feature. Crazy it is not there.

    Please fix this. It works for my Yahoo! email on iOS but not Mac? Unreal. More unreal that it works for Gmail... there should be no difference.

    I use Macos10.14.3. I use Outlook.live and find the focussed email useful. I have an Office 365 home annual subscription. Downloaded outlook 16.22.1 but no focussed inbox. Why?

  • Derek Schaefer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Wholly inappropriate that focused inbox is unsupported for Outlook.com but is supported for GMail. Way to focus on your competitor's product first. Not only that but there's NOTHING in the help about it online until you go to submit a support case. Complete waste of my time.

  • Dr. Levitin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    What's truly ridiculous is that I get a focused inbox for Gmail (which doesn't even have it) but I cannot get it for my Hotmail account which is another Microsoft product. I don't see a need to write up a comprehensive explanation as to why this is an absolute must. My specific and individual reasons while important are hardly required prerequisites for this to be rectified. My simple introductory statement should be sufficient and too the point.

    Focused inbox NEEDS to be available to all emails. An inbox can get very full with lots of different things, important or less important and it needs to be sorted otherwise we all get stressed and confused. Its not that hard to make your users happy with this simple thing, otherwise we use other mail providers.

    PLEASE ADD FOCUSED INBOX ON MAC. It's not that hard. All other devices are able to have focused inbox other than MacBook for hotmail. Hotmail is my main email and its very hard now to organize through my emails. I love the focused inbox and that is why I didn't use the default apple mail software. But it's ridiculous that the focused inbox for hotmail doesn't even work on Mac. Fix this ASAP

  • Scott Kaiser-Toney commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Ideally, the focused inbox should be available for ALL Outlook.com users, but if you won't do that, please make it available for Outlook.com premium users.

  • Gabriel Leake commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    How can this be available with gmail accounts and not for outlok.com accounts? I guess it's time to switch back to gmail.

  • Dave Cronberger commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    As an Office 365 subscriber that happens to use a Mac I request that focused inbox support be added. That it is missing on this one platform is really irritating.

  • Joseph Cole commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please, please, please allow me to use the Focused Inbox for outlook.com!

    I have Office 365 Business for my business, and it has the Focused Inbox and all my Gmail accounts have the Focused Inbox. With such a great experience with Office 365 Business, I decided to move my personal communications to outlook.com, but now I'm discovering that there's no Focused Inbox!

    Please change this. It's ridiculous that I get this incredible feature with a Google product but not with a Microsoft product — especially since I'm paying for a premium product through my business account!

  • Brian Bruckner commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Outlook for Mac supports Focused Inbox for corporate Exchange accounts and Gmail accounts, but not for Microsoft accounts (e.g., outlook.com, hotmail.com).

    Outlook for PC supports Microsoft accounts with focused inbox.

    Please, please add Focused Inbox support to Outlook for Mac for Microsoft accounts. If it's supported for Gmail, it should CERTAINLY be supported for Microsoft accounts.

  • jorge idiarte commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Really incomprehensible that Outlook for Mac doesn't still have the Focused Inbox. It's really uncomfortable that the same program doesn't work in the same manner when you are working on your Mac or on your Ipad/iPhone.

    Please add the focussed Inbox to Outlook for Mac urgently.

    Outlook for Mac needs too to improve the management of Spam.

    Please add Focused Inbox on Mac. It's really annoying to have it on iOS and web client but not on Mac

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please add "Focused Inbox" on Outlook 365 for MacOS with hotmail accounts.
