    Hello everyone, I have an additional email on my apple mail for work that I need to add a profile pic to that people I send emails to will see. Any ideas on how I achieve this. I have 10.7.5 on my macbook.

    That picture comes from whatever picture you choose for your personal contact in the OS X Address Book. Is the issue that you want to have one picture for one account and a different picture for the second account? I don't think you can do that.

    hmnmmm....Yeah that is the issue I am having. I have my gmail that I use for regular personal stuff and then I have a custom domain email (not sure what you would call it) that I would like to have a profile picture assigned to.

    Far from here
    Just tested this and it works :

    In Address Book, delete your email address for work.

    Create a new contact (your name) with your mail for work and the picture you want.

    In mail, send yourself a test message from the work account ---> you will see the "work" picture.
