    Faculty and Staff: Microsoft Provides a Way to Manage Email Clutter

    Last fall, Microsoft introduced Clutter, which moves less important emails out of your inbox and keeps you focused on what’s most important to you. Today, Clutter is moving over one million emails per day and saves users 82 minutes per month on average. 

     

    Clutter is on by default to help more people benefit from using this option. iTech does not control Clutter at an administrative level.  It can only be turned off at the end user level via Outlook Web Access. If you would like to turn Clutter off, please follow these directions
