You are here:
You have the option to add a profile picture for your mailbox - similar to Facebook, WhatsApp and other popular services. However, the Outlook profile picture will only be displayed to UW/H members when they open your entry in the address book or when they open mails sent by you with Outlook or Outlook Web Access.
Our communications department has this to say:
We encourage you to use this feature and post a picture of yourself, such as the picture that also appears in your personal profile on our web pages. This would be a good orientation aid, especially for new employees, and would give e-mail communication a more personal touch. Of course, it is up to you to make use of this.
If you decide to do so, we ask that you treat the profile picture in a serious manner. For example, photos of the children, pets or fun pictures would be out of place here.
Log in to Outlook Web Access: https://owa.uni-wh.de
Click on the gear icon in the top right-hand corner and then on "Options".
You will now see the "My Account" page - click on "Edit Information".
Click on "Modify" and select the file with the photo you want. Use a square image if possible and check after selection that the photo is displayed as desired.
- Click on "Save" -> Your profile picture will now appear in your address book entry and in the header of the mails that UW/H members receive from you if they use Outlook or Outlook Web Access.
Please note that a changed profile picture in the address book is only visible immediately in Outlook Web Access. In Outlook, the update may take up to one day due to the update procedure used.
