Outlook 2013 from Office 365

Hi

So we have locally deployed office 2013 from the office 365 and all is going well so far. We also introduced profile pictures of staff which they find great when using Lync but find quite annoying when they are sending and receiving email to and from one another. I understand this profile photo does not go with external emails its just for users on the GAL but is there anyway of not having the profile picture on emails that users send and receive? Take for example an email thread going on for over 5 emails users end up not wanting to see the others all the 5 times.

Its probably an all or nothing thing but just thought i would ask as it great in Lync.

Thanks

The display of photos in the Outlook client is not customizable.  You can control photo display to some level of granularity in the Lync client but those options do not impact the contact card and photo views in the Outlook client.

Hi

On this page http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/email/stop-showing-contact-pictures-in-messages/ there is an Outlook option that might work for you.

Let me test this in my test system and let you know (as I see the pictures too).

Thanks

That's very odd. I tried this in a test (and a live environment) and once that option was turned off and Outlook restarted the pictures went away.

Are you able to provide screen shots of the option I have mentioned and the result it displays when turned off?

Thanks
Mark
