Microsoft has begun enabling the Clutter feature for all UNO Office 365 accounts. Clutter is an email filtering option available to Office 365 customers. It is similar to an anti-spam filter. It moves less important email (based on your reading habits) into a 'Clutter' folder where they can be ignored or reviewed later. Most of the mail going into the folder should be bulk mail (advertisements) and messages from mailing lists. However, you will want to periodically check the Clutter folder as it may move legitimate email into this folder.
All organizational and personal (students, faculty, and staff) Box accounts have been upgraded to unlimited storage. No action is required to change your account.
