provide an option to remove avatar in inbox. I can see who it's from in the message line I dont need the avatar. Email isn't text messaging
Outlook users are mostly from enterprise. We don't need the avatar to be displayed, especially sinc the majority of our contacts have default and not custom avatars. It is distracting and could provide a cleaner more Full Windows experience if it were removed. Most users wish the app version of outlook was more in line with the desktop version. Limitations being what they are, Apple has made their mail more representative of desktop outlook than even Outlook.

Provide the user with an option to turn off the display icon/avatar of all mailbox contacts on the app and on PC
Why is this available on iOS but not on android? Turn this on already.

I agree with the original poster completely. The only place where the dreaded circles can be useful though is in the merged multiple account inbox...instead of initials make them display the logo of the account( outlook, gmail etc) so user can instantly see from which account mail comes from...and make these avatars monochrome...no childish colors please.

Hello Andy, welcome to Outlook In-App Support for Android.
Are you referring to your contact's avatars? At this time, there's no option to remove avatars within the app.
I understand that this is frustrating, but you may suggest this feature by going to Settings ⚙️→ Help & Feedback → Suggest a feature.
