How can we improve Outlook on the web?

Do away with the colored circle with initials/photo in it. Extremely distracting.

    I don't want to see his face in person. I CERTAINLY don't want to have to look at him in my email!!!

    I didn't find the big letter next to each email in my inbox to be very helpful at all. I think it just made it feel a bit overwhelming and cluttered

    Seeing initials instead of full names is not professional at all. And for professional use there's no need of many colors. May be it will interest teenagers for funny e-mails, like seeing GIF's but not at a professional. And the bad thing, professionals need to search inside settings to find out how to deactivate those colors and GIF's. If peolple are seraching for fun, ask them to go on social media but DO NOT PUT FUNNY THINGS on professional e-mails!!!

    Don't need little icons with initials or pictures on the screen. Just show me the email header stuff please

    Love the attachment preview, hate the pictures and color icons.

    Adding an icon next to each email makes the mailbox too cluttered and too visually stimulating. Keep it simple

    The New Outlook sucks. Way too bubbly, and hard to see content immediately. This isn't Facebook - I don't need people's faces in my inbox.
