Annoying colorful circles near the emails
Keep the old look
Thanks for the feedback! The colorful circles are what we call Sender Images. If you have a photo for that contact, it will be displayed when you have an email from them. When you don’t have a photo the circles are filled in with color and the initials of the sender.
Now I totally understand that you don’t like them! I know not everyone enjoys every feature we introduce, however we do offer flexibility by disabling them if you don’t like them.
To turn these off do the following:
1) Click on the Gear in the upper right hand corner
2) In the Quick Settings Pane that opened look for Sender Photos
3) You can enable or disable the Sender photos right there.
Thanks for the feedback, and please keep it coming!
Everything is so slighted, very annoying and excruciating to look at. Try to make it better not modernized systematic programming phonies
this is rubbish cant find anything why alter things ?

The new outlook is a disaster. Why shouls you have folders, inbox and messages in one screen?
I don't like the new view, plain and simple. Moreover, I can't seem to find a way to turn it back into the old view.
Disappointing to say the least.
terrible design !!!!!!!!!

I think most of outlook mail users like minimalist designs...So the new beta is not upto the mark...
I am not pleased with this current version. It is difficult and you see less emails in the in box
I personally prefer the traditional-looking interface then the one of beta version. The beta interface is a little bit messy and less arranged, making it harder to find a specific email.
Make Outlook.com like web based Outlook used by businesses. If companies can offer this format to their employees why can't you.
Don't like the colored buttons with email initials. Not helpful and makes the screen look too busy.

Don't like the new interface. Hard to navigate. Weird visually. And why when I try to reply to an email won't it let me edit the subject or delete the previous messages in the thread?
i dont like the way you have changed things, it is stupid
I hate the beta version, this is the second time I try it, and I don't like it, so I'm going back. I'll tell you why, I can't erase an amount of messages established by me. If I click select, I select everything including the flagged messages and then I have to go to each message to take the tick off, this is crazy since I have thousands of messages. I have another account with Microsoft like this and I never use it, because it aggravate me.
My Outlook screen has been changed without warning. Why? I was quite satisfied with what went before. Can I have it back please. This arrogant assumption that you are supplying something better does you no good. I'd prefer to revert. Can I do so?

Beta Calendar is absolutely useless. Who really makes these decisions, they are obviously not real world people using the system many times a day.
Just please do not make it a replacement for the current system, or make it so you can edit full information about an event and link it properly to Outlook for the PC
i like the old way don't find this convient at all . cannot find anything or new messages or old ones

I CAN UNDERSTAND THE NEW SYSTEM
, I THINK IT IS VERY CON GUSSING
The Outlook beta is complete garbage.
- The coloured blocks for each entry have been replaced with just coloured text, which visually is less clean and easy to read.
- When I create a new entry I can only add reminders that go back one day or less. Before the beta I could add reminders that went back 2 days, 1 week and 2 weeks. Why on earth was such a useful feature removed?
Leave the LIST the same, just get all the long-running scripts out of here, the Windows Update didn't do as much to fix that as it SHOULD have...
I completely dislike this new format. I find it to be very not user friendly. I used to be automatically when sign in on windows.
