    How to Turn On or Off Focused Inbox in Windows 10 Mail app

    information   Information
    Windows 10 Insiders on the Fast ring have been receiving notifications about a trial of a new focused inbox in Mail and Calendar.

    Focused Inbox for Outlook helps you focus on the emails that matter most to you. It separates your inbox into two tabs—Focused and Other. Your most important emails are on the Focused tab while the rest remain easily accessible—but out of the way—on the Other tab. You’ll be informed about email flowing to Other, and you can switch between tabs at any time to take a quick look.

    Focused Inbox works with you to prioritize what's most important. What lands in Focused Inbox is based on the content of the email (e.g., newsletters, machine-generated email, and so on) and who you interact with most often. If you need to fine-tune your Focused Inbox, Move to Focused and Move to Other options are available to do that.

    The Focused inbox feature is available for Outlook.com, Office 365, and Gmail account email addresses added as an account in the Mail app.

    Hi Brink , any ideas on how to switch off Focused if the App now only stays open 6 secs , not 100% sure if that is the cause but I see a Focus Tab and then it auto closes.
