New Microsoft Outlook Update for Android Allows Users to Send Ignored Messages Directly to the Trash

Microsoft Outlook for Android Now Lets Users Send Ignored Conversations Straight to the Trash Bin

Microsoft has brought an existing Outlook web capability to its Android mobile app, which lets users send ignored messages to the trash…

Quite a few new features have made their way to Microsoft’s Outlook email client lately. For instance, syncing to third-party calendars and its expansion of voice common support. Now, the software giant is improving its Android app experience with something that’s currently available on the desktop interface. What’s more, it’s a way to help reduce that unwanted inbox clutter.

New Microsoft Outlook Update for Android Allows Users to Send Ignored Messages Directly to the Trash

Microsoft introduced an Ignore Conversation option a while ago for the web platform. Now, the company is bringing the tool to Android. So, when someone uses the Ignore Conversation tool, it sends all current replies to the deleted folder. Plus, the feature works differently than Gmail’s Mute. Any future replies automatically go right to the trash bin, effectively banishing the conversation for good.

However, this doesn’t mean the thread is gone forever. If need be, it’s possible to manually un-ignore the messages from the deleted folder, which moves the messages back to the inbox and delivers future replies as usual.
