SharePoint Online alert - generic person icon

Hi all,

Is there a way to make the icon sent by a SharePoint Online alert show the person's profile photo in the email and not a generic person icon?

    Hi @Sonya Blanchard
    Profile pictures are not available externally, this is by default, so currently we could not view the picture if it is sent by sharepoint online alert.

    The mail sent from alert could not show the profile picture, this is by default.
