Default to Specific Account and not All Accounts
I have two accounts I monitor. One is mine and one is my husband's, but want it to default to my account, not All accounts. Need that option

I've been told by support that it is currently not possible to change the opening view that now shows emails from two accounts mixed together. I use Outlook for a work account and a school account. I will soon be using different Blackboard accounts for both. It is already annoying having my work and school emails mixed together. Soon it is also going to be confusing. I would love to have the option of an opening Outlook view that would show me both (or all) my Outlook accounts and enable me to tap the one I want to open.

I don't want to see a mixed inbox. Need option to disable "All accounts".

Please give us the option to disable"All Accounts" view in the Android Outlook app. I don't ever want to see the emails from my work account mixed in with my personal email accounts.
Harsh Lavingia commented
Allow me to pick one of my Account as default when I open my app instead of displaying all the emails mixed together.
Currently i have to select one of my account after i open the app to see particular account which I mostly use instead of looking at emails from all accounts mixed together.

select which account to view by default.

There are other requests that are asking for the same feature, but someone from Microsoft marked them as "Completed" when they were not actually worked on. I am filing this so that it remains Open until Microsoft does work on the feature.
In the Android Outlook client, by default notifications for new emails open the email within the All Accounts Inbox when multiple email accounts are added to Outlook. There should be an option in Settings that allows users to turn off the All Accounts feature including the All Accounts Inbox. This should also hide the "Home" icon at the top of the left sidebar.

There should be an option to set which amount to show the inbox for by detail. One option can be All Inboxes, but should be forced on me.

Same problem as of 10/26/19.

I would like to disable my consolidated inbox, or be able to choose which accounts can show there. If this isn't possible, then please set up a prompt: which email address should be displayed when replying?
The reason for this request: I have inadvertently shared my personal email address with clients by replying from my "all accounts" view, instead of my work account. I want to avoid this in the future!

If you have multiple emails, like work and school, it confuses the

The "All Accounts" inbox is a "feature" I dislike immensely. It's far too easy to make an error in moving, deleting or replying to messages when the inboxes are comingled. Others may love it, but I want a way to DISABLE it so it never comes up.
Madison Layton commented
you can currently see all your messages from all email accounts in one display, which I found useful until I added my work email and now I don't want to see all my emails together as my work emails are mixed with my personal emails. I would still like to be able to see my emails from all my personal accounts in one display.

more than a few times, I've been meaning to send a mail from my work email, but the reply goes from my Hotmail.
I'm putting this down to being in the "all accounts" view, and as much as I try to avoid it, it seems to be the default setting.
being able to disable it, will help a lot
Luke Thorburn commented
This would save me so much time, it's ridiculous it isn't already an option
Martin Eriksson commented
Really need this feature, I don't want to scroll trough my busy work email to find the important private mails.
Chris Wood commented
I can't believe there isn't an option for this. it is very annoying to open the app and immediately see work and personal emails mixed together.
Kaley Mae Rahl commented
Please add a feature allowing users to choose which inbox opens by default within the Outlook app. Users should be able to select which email account they want to see upon opening the app. Many users have requested the option to NOT see work and personal emails in a combined inbox by default.
***This feature has NOT been completed as previously marked!***
Miller, Mel (mm4ec) commented
This continues to be a problem. Support recommended that I leave this suggestion. All attempts to address this issue failed. please create a universal fix. considering using another app if not corrected, along with 5 day calendar view.
Kyle Schlagel commented
On Windows 10 mobile, I could make a merged inbox/view with two or more accounts, and I could choose which accounts to show in that view. That helped me separate work emails from personal emails, while still being able to see multiple inboxes in each view. In this app for Android, I don't see a way to do that- I can only see all inboxes, or one at a time.

Currently you can set an widget to show emails from a specified account. I myself have multiple outlook widgets for each email address. However, when you open the app using that widget, it'll go to the last account opened, or to the "all accounts" inbox. It would be great if I could use these widgets as shortcuts to my different inboxes from my home screen (like how Windows Phone had it)
