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!
Like the new Outlook.com beta.Only thing I hate are the coloured circles with initials in them on the left of the senders name in Inbox....so dustracting...plus seems to make each line too tall in comparison to the old outlook so there's less emails per page
read only half the message new set up sucks
I do not like the new email format and will discontinue using your product, you already changed it within the last SHORT period of time
I don't like it. Why does everyone think they have to constantly tweak their products! May switch email address soon.
why do you have to change emailing? Leave it alone. You make it more difficult. Not easier.
I hate the present inbox appearance. It's inconvenient. I couldn't find what I want.

Remove the 2 letter initials bubble circle for each contact.
I HATE the "beta" changes!!!!
I cannot even figure out how to reply to an email I've found via a search!!!!
Why isn't there a clearly visible "reply" function????
Forget the so called "new" it is a mess: more complicated and a waste of whomever was paid...and whomever has to utilize it! NO THANK YOU
Outlook Beta - Usually changes are for a good reason: cost cutting, improved service/performance, etc, but this just looks a confusing mess. Maybe those who designed it think it's great, but as a user I think it's pretty awful - sorry, but that's my reaction.

Where in the settings can they be disabled?
I do not want the new hotmail. I hit the try it button and want my original one back that I have had forever
GET RID OF THE THE BIG GIANT CIRCLES ON THE HEADER! Complete waste of space and distracting. You're trying to make it like its a contact. I get 50 sales emails a day, i dont need a big giant 'DG' for dicks sporting goods on the left.
These can be hidden/removed in your settings.
Just is not an idea this is feedback.
I don't like everything in vertical panels.
I don't like that I can't open my email into their own individual window
I don't like that you merge all the emails from one person
I don't like that I can't see the subject of the email when you merge them.
I don't like that I can't see the chain of the email unless I click on some 3 dots.
horrible, don't change current version. At beta version information is overcrowded I can´t see correctly what I´m looking for. Desing is ugly

hi, i guess the version Beta is very confusing, and it put things we are not accustomed to using. Have a lot of information, a lot of windows in a same place, and this confuse the user,
The new panels are too much like the traditional outlook, and they lack the flow and smoothness that I am used to with Hotmail. I do like the new search features. Please do not change the look, if I wanted to use Outlook for layout and functions I would not be using this service. Hotmail has always being simple, easy and made my life very easy. The outlook view does not do that.
If you change it I may migrate over to gmail, and I hate gmail, but it has a similar flow that Hotmail does. You have the best mail service around, please do not ***** with it.
I want my computer returned to the former Outlook format IMMEDIATELY> I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS FORMAT CHANGE . In the future DO NOT change anything on my computer without my specific request

I don´t like the BETA Version at all...I prefer Hotmail instead of Gmail because of its classic format. Easy to follow...
If you want to try make the right window smaller...
It should fit more e-mails in the left window as a list (as the actual version).
