Remove colored circle with abbreviation of sender
Hi, I use the bèta version and since a few days it shows a sort of big color filled dots with the abbreviation of the name of the sender on the left of each email in my inbox. That takes up a lot of space and adds no value for me, therefore lowers my productivity. It takes time to translate it to the name to know who the sender is, and that name is only 2 mm to the right.
Could you make it an option or disable it all? I'm either way interested in what the idea behind these things is, maybe it is something new that I don't understand how to use it.
The new circles are distracting and I can’t view the full email on my phone with the update I can’t zoom out and view it all it doesn’t work, I have to navigate left and right which is annoying I used to be able to see the full email.
The colour circle is a distraction.
It made people hard to recognize which mail is new, which mail is important. Please keep it simple look. No fancy looking. Old version is a lot better.

I can read the sender and subject just fine. I don't need colors and initials, when I could have more of the subject shown instead.
I don't want profile photos shown. Is there an option to turn this off? I also don't want placeholder circles either. It is hugely irritating because it makes it much harder to read the text!
Giant colored circles to the left of the email are useless and irritating. Get rid of them!!
Agreed! Please get rid of these! It makes using this awful. They are too big and just not necessary
It's available for the Desktop web interface, there is no justification for not having that as an option for mobile devices as available screen space is at a greater premium
Your response that these circles are where people can have their photo's is ok. But i dont need to see photos of strangers, whom my only interaction is bussiness. Of family and friends. Got all the pics i need. I want to be able to switch them off. They are distracting on a phone and have yet to see someone actually use a photo. Its an option it appears hardly anyone uses.
No way to disable colored circles on outlook.live.com when browsing on android.
They're distracting, and take up a disproportionate amount of screen real estate - causing even less of the sender and subject to appear before being truncated horizontally.
On mobile the colored circles serve absolutely no purpose and should be removed.
Using an IOS device and was forcible switched to the new format (it’s getting worse with every update) and maddeningly there is no option to disable the “Icons” or pictures on the far left of the messages in the list view.
Please enable this option for the mobile platforms.
