Make "Focused"/"Other" inbox feature optional.
I'm not a big fan of Outlook sorting my email for me and would like an option under settings to revert to pre-focus style inboxing. I can appreciate that others may like this feature, so I think making it optional is the best of both worlds.
Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.
It is currently already possible to to turn on/off the Focused Inbox in the Android app, to do so, open the outlook app on your mobile device > Tap on the gear icon on the upper right corner> scroll down to the focused inbox option and
tap the toggle switch to turn it off.
If you are needing to turn off the Focused inbox option on the Outlook.com website you can do so by logging into the desktop portal then:
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.

Focus is a pain! What were you thinking??? It SUCKS!!!!
Sharon Strantz commented
put all emails focused!
Allisa and Tyler Brock commented
get rid of focused
or just remove it
this focused and other does not make any sense. it just takes longer to find emails. everything should be under one inbox.
Nikki Naseth commented
I could even accept this as an option so other people who like the feature can still have it
i hate focus and other !
This option sucks. it was much better when everything was just in your in box. and a sepreat box for junk mail
Dennis J Buchanan commented
Love the idea of focused and other should be able to turn it on and off.
make it send and receive more often and more dependably.
Ditch 'other'. its completely pointless!
stop with the focussed and other it's just inbox period!!
