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.
Go to Settings, select the email you want to change the initials for, and change the description. I did two words and it automatically changed the initials for the Icon to being the first letter of each word I wrote in for the description. I don't see any option for changing the color
Allow the user to change the appearance of account icons. By default, outlook assigns the same letter and color for both my accounts and I am unable to change them.
Easier to separate the different mails from each other!

Some accounts begin with the same name so it’s not easy to differentiate can we have at least four characters displayed so we know which account is which

I agree that an customized icon man use easier

I have multiple Gmail accounts, at least 2 start with the letter 'J'. Being able to assign either an icon, picture or at least more than 1 character to the current identifier would allow easier identification of each.
If you have more than one gmail, can we have a work, home, school icon (or similar) or even color coding to differentiate between accounts in inbox
It would be great if we could add custom logos for each email account. That would make it far easier to filter which email account we are looking at.

When you expand the list of accounts, only common services such as outlook.com have an icon, the rest just have the first letter of the name of the service. Add an option to select an icon from the photo library so it's easier to distinguish which account is which.
To rename your account
To be able to select the logo / icon for each email account to make it more user friendly
Pls, custom icons for all outlook app accounts.

It would be cool to change the icons for individual email mailboxes.
I have multiple accounts and would be great to able to distinguish between 2 Gmail accounts or 2 outlook accounts through different artwork/colors/etc.
On left navigation pane both of my configured mailboxes are of same red color ... can we change colors so that we identify mailboxes distinctly
I have multiple email accounts and would like to be able to distinguish them by changing the icons.
PLEASE!!!! HOW IS IT 2020 AND THIS STILL ISN'T A THING YET?? ITS A MUST HAVE FOR A MAIL APP!!
Customize with logo or image accounts profile in left menu.
It will be very useful. Thanks

The UX is such a usability mess. Can't get multiple account state at a glance, and it's super useful to have my accounts displayed as "L" "L" "L" "P" "D" "P" like thanks navigation is a breeze. Can't quickly check them out without opening them one by one either.
No gesture to change accounts either, which could've been somewhat of a fix up to a certain number of accounts. You can even customize swipes, but actions are pretty limited.

It would be good to have the option of adding a company logo or displaying the account name/description on the account chooser in the left hand navigation. As it is, I have several accounts that just display the first letter of the description or the Office logo. Having multiple accounts that start with the same letter in the description makes it difficult to distinguish between accounts.
Agreed. This isn’t a fix, just a work around. It just need the ability to upload an image or just use the account image/icon you can add through your office 365 login (if it’s a MS365 account).
I have 12 email accounts (yikes!) and I can’t even tell the different between Hotmail, google or MS365. The only one that comes up with an icon is Yahoo and i have 2 of those.
I have to click on each one to see what they are. Can you please fix this.
***Another features request!***
Also.. ordering of the accounts would be helpful so at least you can put the most commonly used ones at the top!
