In Office 365 email, everyone has a default icon with their initials inside a circle. The icon is so boring that it makes you want to add a photo. However, nobody changes their icon. Everyone keeps the default icon. To use your photo makes you seem rather narcissistic. “Here’s a photo of me!”
I have a desire to personalize my icon. To be more subtle, I slightly customized my default icon with my initials MM. Since the Cubs recently won the World series for the first time in 108 years, I made mine Cubs-themed.
I took a screenshot of my default icon, and then added the World Series trophy and the letter C.
Hahahaha. I hope people are like, whatthe?!
How to change your user icon in Outlook 365:
