Disclaimer: We are resellers of Office 365 BUT we also use it because it works.

The panic that happens when the internet goes down is seconded by the rising panic when you can't send or receive emails. Office 365 offers a guarantee of 99.9% uptime -- so as long as you have a device connected to the internet, you can send and receive emails. By not relying on a server, it avoids relying on the server being up and connected to the internet. But how secure is Office 365? Very. Find out more about Office 365 security.

Clutter

Unveiled on 11 November 2014, Clutter can be turned on in your Office 365 Web app (it's turned off by default). Turning it on will unleash the power of Office Graph on your inbox by moving low-priority messages into a folder, conveniently named Clutter, so you can still access the messages but focus on what's most important to you in your inbox. You can train Clutter by moving messages yourself. 

If you use Gmail's Priority Inbox, Clutter sounds similiar, but instead of creating another inbox view for you, it removes the low priority messages from your actual inbox and puts them in a seperate folder.
