Get rid of the "Focused" inbox folder. Just stop sorting my inbox unless I tell you to.
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.

you don't know what is focused for me, so please get rid of this feature, you have forced on me or give me the option to remove the feature

I would prefer to have all my emails in one spot. I do not want to have to switch between folders based on what you think is important. There is not a consolidation option.
just one inbox please. I can sort my own mail.

just put all emails in one place
having the focus tab is just an inconvenience that doesn't sort between the messages properly and results in taking longer to have to check all my messages.

get rid of focused inbox. It is not intuitive and I am losing business by not getting my emails in a timely manner.
