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.
Gravatar is Free
This is a free service for website owners, developers, and users. A WordPress.com account is required in order to utilize the Gravatar service.
For more information, go to http://en.gravatar.com/support/how-to-sign-up/ to sign up.
The email address used with a Gravatar account must match the address used in a Mail-List.com Mailing List.
Once the Gravatar account is created, the next Digest email will include any new photos.
