Clutter-free

So Microsoft introduced this “awesome new feature that helps filter your low-priority email”. It is called Clutter, and works like this: A new folder has been added to Outlook, called Clutter, and if Outlook deems certain messages are low-priority, it moves them there. According to Microsoft, this feature “learns” so for example if you move an email back from Clutter to your inbox, it will notice this.

I guess the idea is, once in a while, you’ll go through this folder and read your low-priority emails. I don’t know about you, but I have no intention of putting time aside specifically for low-priority emails, so I turned this whole Clutter feature off. Besides, I have a better way of dealing with low-priority emails. If I really do want to read it some day, I’ll flag it so a reminder will pop up later, and I move it out of my inbox. If I don’t want to read it, I just delete it.

I have enough clutter without Clutter.
