myMail Clutter Folder

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. It then moves those messages to a folder called Clutter, where you can review them later.

Clutter Folder Location

The folder is located under your myMail inbox on the left-hand menu.
