    When you view the inbox that shows the list of emails from all configured accounts, it is difficult to identify to which account an email belongs. With a color-code this would be easier. e.g. a small colored vertical line in front of the message line or using one color as the "initials sphere" per account instead of per initials-set as an option in settings.

    add a color dot specific to each account so when you check your "all accounts" inbox, you see right away from what account is each mail (same as in Bluemail), it's very useful

    white background colour not suitable for those with visual problems such as Irlen syndrome,and any form of autism they need to be able to change colour to allow them to read.

    Beyond belief to have same colors on two different email accounts right next to one another...that's really lazy to not let the end user change these settings...lazy

    Give the user a color choice for the palette and appearance of the inbox, this color could also appear on the home page to easily see from which account each email are

    Users should be able to set fully custom colors with alpha channel for each screen element, including app background and text.

    Goal is to allow user to determine if they want to launch the mail app by simply glancing at the device. Color related to account allows user to distinguish 'work' email from personal, etc. with just a glance. Saves user time.

    just like font bold options, colour is a given for any email app. no idea why Outlook team havent thought of this
