Color-coding for emails
So it's easy to know which email address the message was sent to even before opening it.
I would like to have 1 color for my work email account 1, another for work email 2, a color for personal 1, and another color for my Gmail. When viewing emails, instead of the mix of colors for the senders' images, they would all display the color assigned to my different accounts so I can quickly differentiate them all in the combined views. This would also be nice to sync with calendars, so all of my emails and events for each account can be coded to same colors.

There is no differentiation between any inbox themes or theme colors in general.

to be able to colour emails to a priority order, you could easily see which needs addressing as of importance from quick glances.
Identify the msgs in unified mailbox
organize and categorize emails by categories, mark with high importance email, and pin to the to of the email.

As a dyslexic user my brain is tuned to look for different visual indicators. I have three accounts setup in outlook (Google, Outlook.com and Exchange Online). When I see outlook notifications, on android, they're all the same colour, which means I have to carefully read the detail to know which account is notifying me.

I'd like for a colour coded system for emails, just like for calendars, when you have multiple emails added in the app. When displaying all inboxes it should be more clear which email belongs to which inbox without having to open the email.

When looking at all accounts inbox we need to be able to identify by color which account an email belongs to.

When looking at all account inbox, no way to easily identify at a glance what acct the email was sent to. a simple sliver of color or a dot for each message corresponding to a mail acct would solve that.
Which brings me to request 2: ability to choose my account icon identifiers / colors. I have 2 yahoo accts added and they are circles with a single letter and some random color. My gmail, hotmail and o365 all use nice icons to identify them. I'd prefer to just choose colors for them instead. don't know why the yahoos don't have the little Yahoo logo.
Compared to Google calendar, one reason that causes me to think outlook's calendar unpractical is the missing of color choice for my arranges. Color is directly perceived through the senses so please add this function.

For example all emails from account 1 would be color codes red, account 2 would be green so when viewing all email listing you could quickly tell which email is sent to account 1 or 2.

it would be more helpful if I could color code when setting up a calendar appt. I want to use it for my family and give each child a different color foe their activities. I don't want to have to use a different account for each child, just a different color. Right now it looks like one person is in 4 different places at the same time every day. I have very active kids.

Having ability to easily distinguish between accounts is critical in email management and triage on a mobile device.
Please add simple colour code option for the user, it should match the calendar colour to make things consistent.
