Color-coding for emails

So it's easy to know which email address the message was sent to even before opening it.

        Enable colours to be assigned manually and through filters (as flags, or preferably colour the whole email). At least red, yellow, green, maybe more (as per Calendar). Allow clustering, prioritizing, elevating to top, etc. by category.

        when multiple accounts are used in outlook like office 365 and exchange server, the mail boxes need to be in different colors. this feature is already present in the calendar within outlook where different accounts are shown in different colors.

        I have too many personalized folders, so I like to put color, like red, on the most frequently accessed ones.

        The option of choosing a colour for each subfolder will make interface more friendly to the user.

        Manual Colour Coding - with multiple email addresses in my inbox i cannot know which address received an email until I open it

        allow users to cookie coffee different email accounts to distinguish mail in unified inbox. this is something that had begun available for years on similar apps

        i am part of a mailing list where we receive 1000 mail per day. i cannot highlight in color the mails addressed to me. as a workaround, i search for them.

        On Outlook Android, events are not colour-coded (does not sync with Categories on desktop!), making it difficult to filter out important events on my calendar. Suggest to add feature which allows us to click into each event and select a colour we want. Google Calendar Android does this excellently!

        unread e-mails are noted as bold. This is not a good choose because is not very clear from the reed one! I suggest in the left side to have for the unread emails a colour example blue and for the flagged one another colour example orange.

        Use some colors for each different account so that we can filter emails in common inbox on the basis of color identification.

        work is using emails to identify deficiency in trianing. us a color-coded plan to display information to Manager.

        colour of a contact within a specified contact email address (as I have a few business & personal) should reflect the colour of each account that is set. therefore instantly k owing if email or contact is personal or each business related..
