Trouble changing profile pictures

I am trying to get seperate pictures for my profile image and my forum avatar. But when I try to upload to pictures, it either makes the profile picture the wrong one or makes them both the same. If it helps, I am using an iPod touch.

Do the pictures have the same file name?

The iPod Touch generally will name each file it sends out image.jpg.

During the upload process, MAIL will overwrite the previous "image.jpg" with the new one you just uploaded... Along with an identifier to bind it to your account... In this case: 20136image.jpg and sm20136image.jpg

MAIL creates a thumbnail of every Profile Picture you upload: (sm20136image.jpg) just in case you want to use it as a forum avatar, and stores it with the forum avatars....
Overwriting the specific image you wanted to use as a forum avatar.

Solution? Uhm...

Swap to a product that allows you to control the filename of the files you upload...
Sorry Sad

It's on my buglist as something I want to deal with... But short of ME assigning a filename to everything that gets uploaded (which would make the entire image storage problem around here worse) I'm not sure how to deal with iDevices... They're supposed to "Just Work"...
