    Hello everyone, I'm wondering how to change or delete the little picture in Mail that seems to be attached to messages. I am really hoping it's not attached to outgoing messages because I don't really want that. I don't know where it came from and I can't seem to find any settings for it.

    It only seems to show up on one account in Mail, not all 4 that I have set up.

    The one that is showing up isn't even the one I have selected for my account picture or iChat icon so I'm even a little more confused.

    thanks

    It's not included on outgoing email.

    You can change/delete it in AddressBook. The reason it's only there for one account is (presumably) because you haven't put all your email addresses in your personal entry on AddressBook?

    The picture is set automatically in System Prefs > Accounts > when the account is first set up. Click on the set picture for a drop down of more.
    It can also be changed in Address Book in the same way as you can put pics on everyone else in there. They are not sent and are only seen by you.

    Update -- 2013

    I believe that has changed and now, you'll want to open the equivalent to what was called "Address Book"
    = In APPLICATIONS
    > open CONTACTS
    > choose CARD
    > in drop down, choose either
    CLEAR IMAGE to delete
    or
    CUSTOM IMAGE, obviously, to choose a new image
