Outlook for Android

Color-coding for emails

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

        I use multiple email IDs, and would love to be able to see which email in my inbox was received on which email ID. A small color tab of sorts would greatly help it.

        Currently the colour of the circle in front if the message is selected randomly but depending on the sender. Now I got lot of different colours that make no sense. I would like to link a colour to a mail account. Ex : outlook is blue, gmail is red, professional mails are green... Calendar already offers this feature

        right now when you go to combined inbox or what is called the home all emails appear the same. Each email has an icon next to it with the initials of the sender and a random color coding. But this does not tell me which email came from which address. when I get email from a particular address I must respond to it quicker and it would be nice to be able to know in the combined inbox which one is from my work instead of my personal right now you can't tell without going email by email or switching to that specific inbox when you have multiple accounts. Even if it was possible to replace the circle with the initials in it and put the initial of the email address the mail came from that would be much more useful than the two letters or single letter that showing that circle when the sender is clearly listed right next to it in full text. Most other apps support this or at least have a note next to the title and sender of the email that tells you what address the email was addressed to. This prevents me from using this app I'm on Microsoft consultant and prefer to use Microsoft products to ensure that I am eating the dog food that I'm selling to my customers. I think this would be a huge benefit to anyone with multiple accounts whether it be color coding the emails by e-mail address or at least adding the label on the inbox screen next to the sender and title.

        You do change the colors of different mail addresses witch helps differentiate them but not yet to indentify them intuitively.

        as it is, it's not easy to distinguish unread emails because the bold text isn't drastic enough. instead, please make them blue or green.

        to be able to add/change/modify color on the Outlook apps.

        for the moment you can only view the color!

        keep going ;)

        I have been using AquaMail since long (after Outlook) and nothing compares to AquaMail's customizations features including the very basic ones like tab color for each email account to signatures for new mail or replies to swipe to select all visible emails, etc. Pls also chk categorisation feature of Edison Mail. Would love to use Outlook but wish it had all those features and more for dear of use..!

        When I have multiple email accounts synced in Outlook, the Widget just shows a truckload of messages. It'll be more productive if those mails were colour coded to indicate which account is it from. Like a small vertical line at the left edge, etc.

        now everything looks so cheap and not well made. it's extremely hard to navigate through the outlook app both on android and pc. outlook.com as well, because everything is "modern clean" black and white. and some poor attempt to fill oute some dots with colour. you can better! it was even easier to use outlook on windows 98.

        Rather than coloured tabs can we have them as like BlueMail tabs that show tabs as where from such as ebay amazon argos
