Most of the time, the Clutter folder in my new Outlook works great.
Sometimes Outlook buries important emails from people I want to hear from in the Clutter folder, and as a result I have to browse it regularly to rescue them, but that’s another story entirely.
Instead, let’s look at what the Clutter folder spared me from this week.
A clear winner for the title of Most Preposterous, this email doesn’t beat around the bush, they just get right down to business:
We will consider an offer on Take-all basis of our iPhone [brand redacted] Mobile accessories.

Yeah, I have no doubt that you’d consider an offer on a “take-all” basis.
Not that it matters, but even worse than the egregious we’re-dropping-our-pants offer is the fact that the sender has never heard of “bcc:” and lumped the thousand-or-so email addresses they sent this to in the “To:” field.
So much to roll my eyes at, so little time.
