Option to turn off the avatar in mail preview pane (and everywhere else, for that matter)

I don’t use, or really care for, avatars in email matters. Yet, eMclient wastes a lot of vertical space in the email preview pane, just to display the default gray (no-)avatar placeholder.

I wish eMclient had an option to turn that gray blob off, and display just the relevant from/to/etc text fields, instead. That would make room for 3-4 more lines of useful text in that pane.

The avatar is not that much taller than the To and From lines, so that does not matter much to me. However, I agree it would be useful to remove the avatar for those who don’t want it. You have my vote.
