My mail is divided into "focused" and "other." Why? I want once column of messages. Period.

I found an article that describes how to turn it off for mail apps, but is your problem on a website or in an app?

Thanks much. I don't know why I didn't find the solution myself, because I thought I went through every settings option I could find. Apparently I missed the connection between "display settings" and sorting mail into arbitrary groups. Now I'd like to know why the change was made without my request, but that's another matter.

I appreciate the help.
