Manually Sort Accounts Order
ReyComputers . commented
Hi, I currently have about 7 accounts in my Outlook app but I am seriously thinking of going back to the IOS Mail App because Outlook doesn’t allow me to select individual accounts I want to sync automatically.
The problem is that I don’t want to automatically sync some accounts all the time because they are not as important but I still want to have them handy and manually sync them whenever I need.
Also, when I go on vacation I DON’T want my work account to sync to avoid seeing work emails during this time. The only way around this issue right now is to remove the accounts from the app and add them again when I want them instead of just being able to disable the sync just to them while the rest are still syncing messages. Removing the accounts is also not the best solution as it stops syncing my contacts as well.
Having the ability to select what accounts to sync and when will not only limit the annoyance of the alerts (I don’t want to disable just notifications) but also save on battery power as it won’t be working on the background as much to get those messages.
So basically these are the specific features I am requesting.
1- Add a section to each individual account settings where the user can select automatic syncing enabled or disabled
2- Also be able to select whether the Mail and Contacts are synced separately for each account in case we just want to stop the email syncing while still syncing contacts.
3- Swiping down in the main Inbox page will not trigger the sync for accounts that are disabled from auto-syncing, but if we are just viewing the individual account’s Inbox, then swiping down will refresh/sync that mailbox regardless of the auto-syncing mail setting.
4- Default settings when adding a new account should remain as auto- syncing on for Mail, off for Contacts, which is what you already do.
The IOS built-in Mail app already has most of the items I mentioned above, not sure why these were left out of the Outlook app since the beginning.
Currently, you have to delete the accounts and sign in to make them appear in the way you want the mail accounts to appear in the left side and in the settings section. A touch drag feature to move them up and down without having to sign out of the accounts would be great.
Would be very happy if I could customize colors and initial for each email account. Also, would like to rearrange order the email accounts show up on left pane. Thanks!

It would be very useful to be able to rearrange the order and/or color of the mail account icons on the left side bar. Maybe even along with the abbreviation initials
I have multiple accounts and would like to control the order they are displayed when I touch the home button.

An option to manage and change the order of email accounts
The option to move the accounts up or down so I can arrange them in the order I want them.
To move them up or down press and hold and drag up or down.
Being able to move the order of the email accounts up and down to personal liking. Not even sure what it is currently being ordered by right now, but it’s not consistent.

If you have multiple accounts, change the order they show in on the home screen.

Several times my mailboxes have been re-arranged. Would like the ability/function to manually arrange my mailboxes to my own preference.
I have multiple mail accounts. I wish I can change the order they are listed

I want to change the order of the list of emails (I check inboxes individually).
I do not see that capability.

I would like to be able to rearrange the order of the email accounts in any preferred order I choose. Not just the order that the accounts were entered to be set up.
Joseph Wolcott commented
It would be great if users could organize the order of the multiple email accounts as they please.

When you open the menu on the left we need a way to reorder the accounts listed. I have multiple accounts for different businesses and I would like to have them in a certain order.
Possibility to rearrange the order of the accounts. So you can sort them the way best suits for you.

Currently email addresses show up in the order they were added to the app. I’d like to resort so that the addresses I use the most are on the top.

While adding email account the old organisation email account still appears. It shouldn’t be there and while adding I should have clean screen

I also want this change to occur

We should be able to edit the order of accounts in the sidebar - moving an account to the top, for example, without having to delete every single account and re-add it the desired order.
