Can't sync Contact Photos with iPhone & EAS
Problem reported by kevind - 1/7/2016 at 1:28 PM
Using an iPhone6 with ActiveSync mailbox, often contact photos do not sync.
  1. Add a new contact on iPhone and include a photo.
  2. Go into webmail -- contact is there, but no photo.
After several tests, it appears to be related to the size/resolution of the photo. When I use the front-facing (selfie) camera with lower resolution, it works pretty reliably. Take a pic with the regular camera and a busy background and it fails.
Not sure if it's related, but the iPhone allows you to select a portion of the pic with a circle. When it syncs to SmarterMail, it takes the whole picture, not just the circled section.

This photo sync problem is still occurring with the latest versions of SM (15.3.6095) and iOS (10.0.1). Hoping ST can take a look at it. Thanks!

I haven't tested with 15.3.6109, but didn't see any fixes in the release notes. Can someone try to duplicate and confirm it as a problem? Thanks.
