Check your Social Media privacy setting to block undersired
images in Outlook.com email
Outlook.com, which serves as Microsoft’s new email portal,
includes integration with Facebook and Twitter, specifically
profile picture lookup. When an Outlook.com user receives an email,
the service will attempt to pull a picture from social media
accounts that are associated with the sender’s email address.
Having integration with social media websites
can be a good thing, but there may be reasons for not wanting your
social media profile picture to appear next to your emails in
someone else's inbox.
For example, if you use your UB email account
to send a message to someone at Outlook.com and your UB email
account is associated with Facebook or Twitter, Outlook.com will
pull a picture from Facebook to display when your email message is
displayed. Depending on what images you have on Facebook or
Twitter, the picture may be inappropriate, like Mr. Party
Outlook.com provides Web access for the
following popular email domains: @hotmail.com, @msn.com, @live.com
and @outlook.com. So email messages sent to people with mailboxes
with these domains may see your social media profile picture,
unless you take steps to disable this integration feature.
