What is Clutter?
Clutter is an email sorting feature created for Office 365, similar to Junk Mail. Clutter moves your low priority messages out of your Inbox so you can easily scan for important messages. Clutter analyzes your email habits, and based on your past behavior, it determines the messages that you’re most likely to ignore. After determination, it moves the messages into its own folder so that you may review them at a later date.
How Does Clutter Work?
As mentioned above, Clutter determines your habits and preferences, as well as assigning priority to messages based on your behavior. It then moves those messages to the Clutter folder so that you may keep high priority messages front and center in your Inbox. Since Clutter does sort messages based on your behavior, it can be trained to keep important messages in the Inbox. In order to 'train' Clutter you can drag important messages to the Inbox. The tool will get smarter over time, learning from your behavior and the dragging of important messages back to the Inbox.
