Customise account icon
The new navigation pane doesn't allow customisation of the initials in the circle. With multiple accounts in outlook it's impossible to tell them apart.
Let users set a custom account avatar.

I'm personally not very happy with this fix but at least it allows me to tell my accounts apart.
- Go into 'Settings': tap home icon in top left corner then cog on the bottom left of the screen
- Under 'Email Accounts' tap on an account
- Change the 'Description': the first letter of whatever you enter here will be used as the icon for this account
I have many email accounts I use through this app and I would love the ability to change the icons on the left side, some of them are the same, like if I’m using 2 gmails I have two gmail logos and it gets confusing which one. Please add in the ability to upload a photo instead (like my company logo, upload from photos)
Would make this app great. However, without it I shall try a different app - anyone recommend one? My Samsung tablet has a great email app, but I think it's Samsung only.

Seems like this issues has been around for a while. It should be an easy feature for MS to implement and would make managing multiple mailboxes so much easier.

Please, the ideal would be a custom image, but at least change the letter is essential. It cant be hard.
Ability to change the icon would be supremely easy to implement and add value to this app. Please sort this soon

Gracias por si asistencia
I absolutely need this to tell my accounts apart. A color would be best in my opinion or a logo/avatar.
I have multiple email accounts. I can’t tell which one is which, as it only shows one letter.
I love this

Revert to old don’t want my yahoo account merge to my Maraj AC account
Please please do this or at least let us choose the colour ourselves for each account!
This is a MUST! Apple calendar could do it 10 years ago, I guess Microsoft should be able to do it at some point, no?

Dislike to busy and do not like have no time stamp !
Blakcberry Hub lets you chose account colour and customize notifications inlcuding the colour of the LED (has for years); Samsung emal at least assigns a different colour to each account. Can't believe Outlook doesn't support such a simple feature that makes the interface so much better. I have 5 accounts and may stop using Outlook for this very reason.

So needed! Probably three single thing that frustrates me most about this app at the moment!
