Per account rules for focused inbox
I'd like to be able to set focused by account. I love the focused feature on my work emails as I get loads of useless emails. For my personal emails it just means an extra click as I like to see them all!
I need certain "no-reply" e-mails to go to my focused inbox. These include e-blast e-mails from my son's school, and mass/junk e-mails from my 2 favorite coffee shops. How can I do this???
Move Facebook to other inbox
Add capability to 'People focused' inbox

1) Focussed: Did I opt in for this. Two in-boxes is frustrating.
2) If something is sent to junk but is actually deemed as 'acceptable' and responded to and/or moved to inbox etc. then subsequent messages from same "...@com" (or whatever) should not be sent to junk. Maybe encourage users to make more use of rules and wizards?
Th Focussed Inbox on mac/iOS has major disadvantage in that the emails become lost in the system and not discoverable

I use the focused/other inbox in outlook IOS and have been proceeding with training it as to what should remain in "focused" and what should go into "other". And I also have my alert to sound only for focused email.
As you know, the default for a previously unknown sender email address is to put it into "Focused".
But in the past few months I've been getting a lot of spam/junk (about weight loss) - sometimes dozens per day. They are all coming from different individual email addresses and therefore coming directly into the focused inbox and alerting me. I.e: Since the spammers are doing their spam using countless individual email addresses, they all go into the focused inbox.
So it occurred to me that this problems would not occur if I could make the default "Other", and then of course recommence the training as to what should go into "Focused".
So my suggestion is: Could you provide a way of setting the default to "Other".
I think it's up to me to decide what emails I want to see and not an automated system which always gets it wrong. I hate the feature and I feel like it should be an option and not something that's forced upon us.
1. So sorry but the automatic sorting/ classification/ filing of e-mails is really confusing. Why can't you please let me decide when I want to file an e-mails?
2. Also, the way to move/ classify mails is to be improved.
3. Why can't I simply delete e-mails the way I do in with the iPhone mail app. The way you propose/ make me do it is inefficient.
Since you added the other inbox to 365, the functionality on my iOS device in Outlook has basically become clutter. My focused inbox is no longer focused at all!

Notify specific inboxes. Only getting notifications on focused and main. No notification on specific folders of separated inbox. The important emails are itemized as I like but not receiving notification on those folders.
Outlook should learn what is important and what is clutter/junk. Everything goes to my main inbox right now and fills up my inbox.
Be able to add email addresses so they always come into your focus inbox rather than the other inbox. And also remove email addresses from your focus so they always go to other

Rather than let Outlook deem which emails should be focused allow User to tag emails by subject, sender or domain so they move to focused view when emails arrive
As the emails are organized separately, some of them are not notified so I am not aware of them. I have to check both boxes every once in a while which is not that desired.
Get rid of separated inboxed, or make it easy to choose what goes where

Currently we are only move emails to focussed or other inbox based on the mail I'd. We need to get a feature where one can chose based on a phrase to push a mail to focussed or other inbox
