Sender Avatars or Photos in Digest

The Digest version can display an avatar or photo for each person who posted a message to the List. These photos are connected to Gravatar, a free service that provides an avatar for use online.

The photo is useful for helping to remember people met at in-person conferences & meetings, Zoom calls, etc.

Example of photos in a Digest email

If Mailing List members have not posted their photo or avatar at Gravatar, a blank silhouette is shown.
