How do I change my own email account avatar?

eM Client is able to show avatars for your contacts and can also download avatars from external sources like domain icons and gravatar.
But how do you change your own avatar?
This cannot be done directly via eM Client, as eM Client can only manage the avatars in its database. But there are ways to get your avatar updated and connect an image with your email account everywhere.
The easiest way to change your email avatar is via Gravatar - https://gravatar.com/
Just create an account with your email address and upload an image. eM Client will be able to load this image for your email account.
If you own your domain/have a website on the domain you can set up a favicon. You can read about favicon setup here - https://www.w3.org/2005/10/howto-favicon
Another useful tool can be a favicon generator to create the different sizes of your image - https://www.websiteplanet.com/webtools/favicon-generator
eM Client updates downloaded avatars every 30 days, so you will not see the change in eM Client immediately. But you can force eM Client to re-download new images by clearing the image cache.
Make sure to close eM Client and then delete all avatar folders in C:\Users\%user%\AppData\Local\eM Client
On the next startup, your new image will show up.
