Clutter is a mailbox management system for Office 365. It automatically moves low priority messages into a folder called Clutter. It does this based on your behaviour, for example if you never read email from a particular sender it will move it into the Clutter folder in future. You can train Clutter not to ignore particular messages by moving them back to your inbox. You can also choose to turn off Clutter completely. Visit the IT Services website for more information on Clutter.
In addition to Outlook and the other online Microsoft Office applications, all students have access to 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage through Office 365. There is more information on OneDrive on our website.
