    Hello,

    After migrating my work mail to Exchange Server 2010 I am finally able to use it with Mail application (before we had ES 2003, so it was a no - go). All works fine apart from one detail which makes me wonder - the contact photos from my iCloud address book (or exchange server address book, as they are duplicated sometimes) are randomly showing in mail messages. That means that contact X's photo is visible in all e-mails from him, and then after a few launches it disappears, while other contact photos not showing before are suddenly there. Not a big issue, but I'd love to have it working properly :)

    Any help much appreciated!

    So ate these Contact pictures kept locally on the Mac or on the new Exchange Server?

    They are in both places. I am now thinking that this may be causing the problems. I will try to turn off the exchange contacts and see if that helps.

    SOLVED! The duplication of contacts was the reason, sometimes there were different pictures in exchange and in iCloud which made Mail go crazy and behave like that.
