Mail app for Windows 8.1 - Display social updates and newsletters in the main inbox


By default the Mail app of Windows 8.1 will organize newsletters and social updates in seperate folders. If you only receive a few of these messages each month, then you don't necessarily want to have them in seperate folders.

To get the newsletter and social updates displayed in the Inbox folder:
  • Open the Mail app.
  • Press the Windows key + C to bring up the Charms Bar.
  • Click on Settings > Accounts.
  • Select the account of your choice (if multiple).
  • In the "Organize your email" section, uncheck:
    • Show newsletters separately.
    • Show social updates separately.
