What is Focus Inbox in Microsoft Office 365 or Outlook Online?

Whether you use Outlook Online, the Outlook application or Office 365 you use. With Focus inbox, you separate your email inbox into two tabs: Focused and Other. The most important emails will be on the Focused tab, while the rest will remain easily accessible - but not visually visible - on the Other tab.

Focus Inbox learns from your personal behaviour and will, as it is used, ensure that you do not receive less important mails in your Focus Inbox.

Navigate to: https://outlook.office.com and then select settings. (Via the cogwheel)

Then choose to turn off Focussed Inbox. (To the left)
