Accessing your Settings

Inbox View (Focused vs Other)
Your inbox view will automatically default to a Focused/Other setting. From the app explanation "The Focused Inbox intelligently presorts your email so you can focus on what matters. It places your most important emails in "Focused" and the rest in "Other." To create an inbox that 'feels right' to you, the system takes into account emails and contacts with whom you interact, and filters out noisy sources like automatically generated or bulk email. The more you use it, the better it gets."
To turn this view off and receive all your emails in only one view, navigate to your settings and toggle the button to off under "Focused Inbox."
Organize by Thread

To manage this option, navigate to your settings and toggle the button on or off under "Organize by Thread."
