Office 365 business customers now have a new way to manage their inboxes that can get full of emails that are less than important. Microsoft has started rolling out a new tool called, appropriately, Clutter, that is designed to learn which emails are a top prioroty for users and which are not.
This is apparently much more than just another spam filter. Microsoft says:
"Clutter learns from your actions to determine the messages you are likely to ignore. As less important messages arrive, they are automatically moved to the Clutter folder. Clutter does this by leveraging Office Graph's sophisticated machine learning techniques to determine which messages are Clutter. It gets smarter over time, learning from your prior actions with similar messages, and assessing things like the type of content and even how you are addressed in the message."
Clutter is turned off by default but can be activated via the Outlook Web App options menu. It can be turned on and off at any time. How much email that you don't really need makes its way to your inbox every day?
