I have OSX 10.6.8 on my I-Mac.
Three years ago a friend put a picture on my Mail which appears at the end of the the subject box on outgoing e-mails. As I have lost touch with my friend how do I delete the pic or add a new one?

If I can recall as far back as SL, and it is probably the same now, the photo is the one associated with your Mac account.

Go to System Preferences, then Users & Groups. Click on your name and you should see the same photo associated with it. You can drag & drop any photo you like on to the image square. In fact, it can be almost any sort of image you want as long as it is in JPEG format.

That's how you change the old for the new.

Please post back—success or not.

Here are a couple of things to check. Do them in the order listed.

1. In that Users & Groups preference pane (Accounts in some versions of OS X IIRC) check the padlock at the bottom of the preference pane. If it is locked unlock it by clicking the padlock and entering an administrator password.
2. If you cannot drag a new picture in place try double-clicking the picture. That should bring up a dialog that lets you select a new picture.
3. You may or may not need to close System Preferences for the picture change to "stick".
