Disable Clutter in Office 365 Mailboxes Using Powershell

Clutter is a feature in Office 365 that moves all of your low priority emails out of your inbox into a dedicated folder. The problem is that some legitimate emails might be marked as low priority and inadvertently be sent to your clutter folder. In this article we’re going to discuss step by step how to disable clutter in Office 365 mailboxes using Powershell.

 

Now, I should mention that there really isn’t an easy way to disable clutter for the entire org (at least that I know of as of the writing of this article). Because of that, we’re going to revert to our trusty ol’ friend Powershell to do the heavy lifting. This will also allow us to automate this process on an ongoing basis so any new people that are onboarding, will get this setting too.

$UserList = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited

foreach ($User in $UserList) {
    try {        
            Set-Clutter -Identity $User -Enable: $false -ErrorAction Stop
        
        } catch {
            Write-Error $_.Exception.Message
    }
}

 

This is not the most complicated script in the world and its fairly easy to read, but essentially we’re going to be getting all of the mailboxes in the org and running a foreach loop to disable clutter in Office 365.
