We’re getting a look at all the new features of Windows 8.1 today at Microsoft’s Build 2013 conference and one that stuck out is Outlook’s new ability to “sweep” away annoying emails. Email hasn’t evolved in quite a while and companies like Microsoft and Google have taken notice. Google recently released an updated version of Gmail, which allows users to categorize emails by type. There are sections for forums, daily deals, and newsletters.
Microsoft is taking a different approach by allow users to “sweep” away these annoying messages. Daily deal emails usually fill up your inbox since you read them once and forget about it. Now you can set it to delete the last 10 or every email except for the latest.
This feature will make organizing your daily emails much easier and will help de-clutter your inbox. You can find all our Build 2013 news here.
