In Outlook 2016, “Clutter” can help you filter low-priority email, saving time for your most important messages. The email server keeps track of the email you read and the ones you don’t. Once you turn it on, Clutter is automatic. As new email comes in, it takes messages you’re most likely to ignore and puts them into the “Clutter” folder. The more you use it, the better it gets.
The Clutter folder is found in the sidebar list of folders in Outlook. You might prefer to turn off this feature rather than miss a potentially important message.
- Open the Outlook Web App by clicking this link http://mail.gps.edu. Sign in with your GPS email user name and password. Note that Clutter must be turned of/on using the web app.
- On the top right corner of the page, go to Settings > Mail > Automatic processing > Clutter.
- To turn Clutter off, select Don’t separate items identified as Clutter, then Save .
- To turn Clutter on, check Separate items identified as Clutter, then Save .
NOTE The Clutter folder remains in Outlook after you turn off the Clutter feature.
