Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is it at all possible to display the profile photo of a users Gmail account to their recipients when they are send out emails? So if a Gmail user with a photo sends an email to four users who use the following systems:

  • Outlook.com/Hotmail
  • Yahoo!
  • Seperate Gmail account
  • Outlook using an Exchange Server

Could those recipients see the senders profile photo? Even if I got it to work so that it displayed that persons photo in a Gmail to Gmail situation, would be brilliant.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Only Google users will be able to see a Google User's Profile avatar. The other three options know nothing about a Google Profile. –  Ramhound Nov 6 '13 at 16:43
