Cut email clutter with new tool

Starting July 2015, Microsoft is enabling Clutter on Queen’s email accounts, a new feature designed to make users’ email life easier and more organized by de-cluttering their inbox.

Clutter filters Office 365 email similar to an anti-spam filter, organizing emails into a Clutter folder where they can be ignored or reviewed at a later time. Clutter will learn which messages are less important to users based on their email reading patterns.

Users can refine the organization process by marking specific emails as “clutter” or “not clutter." If users decide that this feature is not for them, they can simply turn it off at any time in their Office 365 Settings. 

For more information on Clutter, visit the ITS spotlight story. As Microsoft continues to roll out new features such as Clutter, ITS will notify users and information will be available on the ITS Microsoft Office features page.
