I've got two Outlook.com email accounts in Outlook on my Android phone, and today I added my work email account to Outlook on my phone. I'd like to be able to rearrange the order that the emails are listed, when looking at the Accounts view. I've pressed and held each in turn, in hopes that it would recognize that I wanted to move it. It didn't work. I pressed and held for a long time. I pressed and help it very hard. Nothing. Telling me that isn't the way to rearrange the email accounts, if it's possible to do so at all.
So, is it possible to rearrange the email accounts in the Accounts listing, on an Android phone? If so, how is it done?

Isn't that great? Nobody cares about your problem here... I have the same question. But this app is trash in many ways and most basic features there tend to go from bad to worse. But hey, who needs basic functionality, this thing can read my emails aloud /irony off.
So, did you find a better alternative app?

@Rod Falanga I have the same issue and this is the only fix I've been able to do.
Delete and re-add the accounts in the order you want them to appear. When you re-add an account, it will appear at the bottom of the list.
I feel your pain, I have 5 different Microsoft email accounts on my phone so keeping track can be a nightmare!
This is a rather hacky fix but until press and hold functionality is added, might have to do!

I've discovered in the android app under settings on the right hand side opposite mail accounts there is a little pencil. Click this and it takes you to a page to rearrange the accounts by moving the handles on the right. Then click the tick in the top right. This reorders the accounts, though for how long I don't know.
I first set them up in the correct order putting 1, 2, 3 ... as the first part of the name but after 5 minutes number 1 had slipped to 4th for no apparent reason. I'm using it on Chromebook as the web version doesn't work.

Yes, you can. I just did it. Go to Settings (the gear icon). Under Mail Accounts, click the pencil. Each account will have double lines on the right hand side. Use them to order the accounts the way you want. Click the checkmark. Get out of settings, and check the order. If they're sill in the original order, close out the app and re-open it. They should be in the desired order.@Tony_Arch
