Other people see a different photo than I do when hovering over my name. How can I change this?
I already changed the photo in the settings, and tried the contact list changes. What can I do to solve this problem?
This isn't about what others are doing to your account, it's an old bug where when you hover over your name in any email chain an old photo pops up on a little profile card. I just had this problem, here's how I finally fixed it:
The thing is, others can add their own photo to any of their contacts. Try it yourself: go to a contact’s details and click on Change Picture. You will be presented with four options: Upload; Your photos; Profile photo; No photo. If you choose anything other than Profile photo, you will see the photo that you set for the respective contact and not the user’s profile one.
So, if this is the case, there is nothing you can do besides asking each of your contacts to change their settings, as described above.
Otherwise, if their setting is to show your profile photo, it could be just a problem of browser cache.
(Also, you being angry and shouting doesn’t solve anything.)
