GET RID OF FOCUSED MAIL NOW!
Get rid of the focused mail!, just sort by date cause i have to go through extra steps to find mail thats not there cause it didnt meet the criteria of focused, whatever that may be.
First off, thank you for using outlook.com, and for providing such great actionable feedback!
I just wanted to let you all know that if you don’t like the Focused Inbox, you are able to easily disable it. When you disable it you will get all of your inbox items in a single view.
To do this, do the following:
1) Click on the Gear in the top right,
2) this opens the Quick Settings Pane, from here look for Focused Inbox. Turn it off.
Hope this helps!
leave the "Unread" filter active when flipping between Focused and Other email. I
UI doesn't retain filter selection when I move between Focused and Other. I have to keep selecting UNREAD.
I just did?
It seems that Outlook starts to put messages in Junk Email if I delete messages from certain senders without opening them. This doesn't necessarily mean they are spam - just that they are not important for me to spend time reading compared to other messages. Previously I've just marked them 'not spam' (or whatever the previous option was) and they've been moved to my Inbox.
Recently I've noticed that messages which have been in the Junk Email folder, and which I've then marked 'not spam' are moved to the FOCUSED Inbox. It seems that by marking them 'not spam' there's an assumption that they are focused or important/key messages when in fact I'd probably prefer they went in the 'Other' inbox. My 'focused' inbox is becoming full of messages which I don't consider appropriate to be there.
Is there a way to stop this happening, eg to perhaps select whether something is focused, or to mark something in the focused part of the inbox as 'not focused' or 'other'?
GET RID OF "FOCUSED" EMAILS. THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE NORMAL INBOX.. I AM MISSING IMPORTANT EMAILS AND AM UNABLE TO ACCESS PREVIOUS EMAILS WHICH I NEED. THE UPDATE IS F*CKING RIDICULOUS. SORT IT OUT FOR F*CKS SAKE.
Please remove the "Other" tab. Important emails are being moved there that we are missing. It's making it confusing. You can't do it as well as Gmail has and your set up with the tab is terrible since it's not promintent and VERY easy to miss. Terrible idea to try to copy Gmail on this.

Focused inbox doesn't turn off - if you can't permanently set your preferences, then why do you call them preferences? Also, emails don't stay marked as read. What the ****? this has been a problem for several generations - solve the problems of past iterations or give up and go home.
All of my emails are missing in the web version, but they are in the app version. Both the focused and other inboxes say the box is "cleared." In other words, I can see nothing. And none of my folders exist as well.
I pretty much summed it up above.

I would prefer if almost every mail I get didn't get put in the spam folder, but things being the way they are, at least don't make me have to move the same malplaced mail twice by moving all mails that I mark as "not spam" to the focused inbox. Thank you.
"Move to " list should be bigger. Biggest issue for me was the focused inbox. Even when i turned it off, next time I logged in it was turned back on. Very annoying, hope this doesn't make its way to the iOS app.

- Focused / Other button is too large!
- Left navigation pane texts start to get "..." before the pane border gets near to those texts.
- The most left pane with only 5 icons can be somewhere else, in horizontal. In this way it will make more space for the actual e-mail.
- Unread e-mails can be shown not like "17" but like "4/13" as Focused/Other.

make it possible to see inbox, do not even know what a "focused" inbox is.

It is VERY annoying as I can't find my archived messages. I hope, they find a way so I can read my previous messages.
Just show me all my emails. Why can't I just have a display that shows me all my emails - I don't want you deciding for me what is "focused" and what is "other" - just show me my email.
Too many things all over the place, i like simple focused view not writing of things i dont want to see from all direction.
Also it lags a lot which is annoying.
This still looks as dicey as the original Hotmail inbox. I have complained a number of times about the changes which were imposed on us, never heard back. Why can we not see all mails in one view? There are always some missing. What does Focused mean? Focused on what? I keep missing mails because they do not show in the inbox. How can I get rid of this silly Focused thing? Please let me know, it would help a lot. (I know this comment is supposed to be about beta, but I'm getting quite desperate, as I never hear anything back from you guys!)
Eric Croft commented
The beta does not have the same "focused" & "other" streams like the app does. It make it difficult to sort emails when moving from one system to the other

I can't believe other people haven't hit this, but as soon as I get new mail I see the number next to "Inbox" change, but, if I am in the "Focused" half-inbox, they're not there. If I go to "Other" then back to "Focused", they show up immediately. This is the behavior every single time, without exception. I am on Safari10.1.2 on OS X 10.11.6.
