Outlook 2013 message "icon" - how to set it

I recently accepted an invitation from Xfinity mail to "Sync" with my Outlook mail client. Now that the process is complete, I find that the "icon" column in my Inbox in Outlook 2013 has a Comcast logo for every message, in every account (not just my Xfinity mail account). I can remove the column from the display so I don't have to look at it, but I can't find a way to set or change what is displayed.  I don't know what this "icon" column is supposed to be telling me, so I don't know what functionality (if any) I'm losing by having it taken over by Comcast.  Can anyone explain what the column is for, and how I can get rid of this annoying icon?

It is likely that they installed a client on your computer. Uninstalling this client software should reset the icons to the Outlook default. You do not have to use the Comcast Xfinity client to see your Comcast e-mails in Outlook.

That column does not have a real function, it just displays the type of the item - is it a mail (unread or read), an appointment, note, task, ...?
Removing the column does not remove any of your abilities to use the entry.
