The difference is that ‘Priority’ Inbox holds only important emails, whereas ‘Other’ Inbox holds emails from unknown contacts, newsletters, and other less important messages.
If you find that Priority Inbox is not for you, you can always remove the automatic sorting in your settings.
All you have to do is go to ‘Account Settings’ and under ‘Messaging’ toggle off ‘Priority.’
Spike’s smart inbox automatically understands which contacts are recurring, or important and which are not. Spike sorts newsletters, spam, and other less important emails in ‘Other’ –but if there is an email in ‘Other’ that you want to move to ‘Priority’ all you have to do is mark it as ‘Priority,’ and it will be moved and recognized as ‘Priority’ (also in the future).
By using Priority inbox you can see what’s important more simply. No more getting distracted with a less important newsletter telling you there’s a Sale, or that you’ve won a cruise trip.
Priority inbox increases efficiency since it helps you stay focused on important messages, and more organized. Never miss high priority messages and stay responsive. Never get distracted, and reach inbox zero.
