I want a different color block with my initials where a photo should be.
We should be able to change the color that appears if we don't have a photo.

Why not have a feature to right click on the outlook initial icon and have a color palette to change the color. You have many colors and scenes for the themes to choose from for the outlook users mailbox - Seems like a simple change of color for the "initial icon" which is what the greater world sees might be important.
I seem to have pink in my initials,that I don't want!!!!How the **** do I change it????

I'm done with outlook. If I wanted a pink set of initials, I'd have a *** change.
Twenty-plus years of emails that I'll have to migrate and/or download IF I can find the same email address available from another provider. Yeah, looking forward to that nightmare.
Thanks for destroying a perfectly good email system by jamming it full of unnecessary garbage that renders it so slow I can't stand it anymore, and then top it off by assigning me pink initials and not letting me change it. That's NOT what I want my business or personal life to be represented by. Hotmail was great until you "upgraded" it to complete and utter uselessness. Go #@& yourselves, Microsoft. I'm going email provider shopping. The sooner I'm done with Hotmail, the better. How pathetic.

just open MS Paint, create a square, fill it in with the color of your choice, add lettering if you like and then have your admin add it if you can't to your Outlook profile.

My initials are PINK!!!!!! PINK!!!!!! I am am a MAN!!!!!!!!!!! can you beleave this????!!!!!! I didnt't decide that!!!! How can i change them???? Jesus, I am so ******
Now, how can i send emails??? Where is free choice??
I don't want to upload my photo to O365, and I don't want my initials to pop up as pink. I'd like to change the color of the initials in a way that makes sense for me; this automate color-coding doesn't help me group contacts. Also, the formatting is inconsistent...sometimes it shows up as first name initial first and then last name's initial; sometimes it's switched with last name initial first and first name initial second.
You could upload an image of the colored block with initials if they don't have that functionality.
