Gmail tip of the week

Adding a Professional Photo to your OSD Gmail

You can personalize your OSD Gmail account with a professional picture that will also appear when users scroll over your name in their Inbox, Contacts or in a Google Hangout. This will help people get a better idea of who they are communicating with, which is why it’s even better than a picture of your cat. Or a soccer ball.
