    Hi, everyone,

    I've been missing the little round profile pictures (connected to contacts in Contacts) in Mail, ever since upgrading to Yosemite. Funnily enough, they still appear next to contacts in Messages (texting app).

    In Mail, instead of the profile picture, I get the sender's initials, as if I have the option turned off in Preferences (which it is not). I turned off the option, turned it back on, rebooted, - no effect. Still initials.

    Is anyone else seeing this kind of behavior?

    Nevermind, I figured it out. It appears to be new functionality with Yosemite OS. I tried adding e-mail addresses into Contacts, close the mail app, reopen, and then it displays the profile picture. It is not immediate, and for many e-mails it will show up as initials - for instance, getting an automated e-mail response for an on-line payment I've made. Unless I add the e-mail address for the automated response, it won't show the company's profile pic. (That's fine with me.)
