    Anyone know how to turn off the Stupid color circles with the senders initials on it. Why take up the real estate?

    Most of people like it.

    Anyway, it currently can't be disabled. They may add an option in future updates.

    I would assume it would show the senders contact picture in place of the initials... assuming the contact is in your address book. So I welcome the change.... makes it easier to find "personal" emails, vs. spam... Although most of my friends use SMS or social media over emails these days.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't .

    It's a matter of personal taste and as you can see @Scott Pisclotta some do like the addition of coloured circled contact initials :).

    If you dislike it this much just give them feedback asking for an option to disable it.

    Should it gain enough traction, I'm sure it would be added down the line.

    The alternative would be to add contact pictures.

    does not show contact images inplace of the colored circle for those contacts that are local to the device.
    least not on my ICON running with the latest PREVIEW build of W10M (10.0.14393.726).

    would be nice if it did do this.

    Count me as one that likes the added color. On another note, I wonder the number of people that do have contact photos in their people app. I thought it neat and a good idea when contact photos first came out but over the years I rarely (actually never) add a contact photo to new contacts.

    The colored circles in mail are okay. But I still hate the change to circles for contact pictures because I have a lot of Scandinavian friends and the corners of their faces get cut off.

    I can take it or leave it, but what bothers me is that they actually have people working on silly stuff like this and emojis, when there still exist many real problems with the OS that need to be fixed. It's as if no one is driving the train.

    Aesthetics are just as important as OS processes. No need to chose between one or another.

    It's bad for people who recieve email mostly from sources which aren't contacts. So newsletters, password resets, and everything else will just have the initials which is stupid IMO. It does look nice if you communicate with people mostly by email (though I find it funny that that form of communication still exists today).

    I must've been away too long. When did we abandon email for telepathic communication? Please don't say social media, no serious business conducts itself via Twitter or Instagram.

    Will it still be telepathic once we get chips implanted in our cranium?

    The colored circles remind me so much of Android every time I see them. They look strange and out of place to me here.

    I think I liked the old way better and maybe I'd turn them off if I had a toggle, but they aren't really bothersome to me either. They follow the theme that Skype for Business is using so I don't find them much in my way and will easily get used to them.

    Let me know when you get yours. I'll be pushing up daisies if/when that happens.

    So... like a seance? Now that I think about it, even that's supposed to be a form of "communication."
