Photograph Message Headers

Evolution automatically displays photographs of the sender of an email at the right side of the message header if the sender already embedded a photograph in the message.

You can also manually enable displaying the photograph of the sender of an email if the sender is in one of your address books and has a photograph stored.

To enable this functionality, select Edit ▸ Preferences ▸ Mail Preferences ▸ Headers ▸ Show the photograph of sender in the message preview.

If there are multiple matches for a contact, the first one is always used.

You can also embed your own image in messages that you send under Edit ▸ Plugins ▸ Face. The image has to have a size of 48 x 48 pixels and be in PNG file format.
