How do I add an avatar to my email that my mail recipients can see?

I would like to be able to add a picture of myself (like a profile photo) that will appear when I send someone an email. Not as an attachment or as a signature, but as an avatar that is displayed with my contact details. How do I do this please?

Really not possible unless your email service provider has such a feature. For example, Gmail will have this, but not all email providers will do the same. Some services support Gravatar and by using Gravatar you can include a common avatar.

Hello Emily,
unfortunately it is as IsoQuantic above mentions, this feature must be allowed and available on your mail server.


Hi both of you. Thank you very much for your responses. I use BT Connect, is this what you mean by mail server?

Yes. Your email provider would usually be the company whose domain name appears in your email address.
