Animated from icon in gmail

Hi, I figured out how to created an animated gif that shows up as the from icon in gmail. That’s sending from another gmail account, just changed your profile picture in google+.

However, when I send an email from Constant Contact the from icon just shows a circle with “C” in it.

How do I customize that image?

Hi @BenM589 

 

That's a great question! While I understand how useful it would be to customize this icon, I apologize customizing this icon is not a feature that is available as it is not a setting that Constant Contact controls. This from icon displays differently depending on the email client and the contact's account settings. You can have an image show as the icon in your personal account through adding the "From Email" address to your contact list and manually adding an image to it.

I see, so the easiest way is to set it in gmail and change the profile pic there. I have done that and it works.

However, if I change the from address will it show the gmail address then?

Hi @BenM589. Yes, if you change the From address in your Constant Contact campaign, the icon in Gmail will change as well if the profile icon was not already updated. Each Gmail address has their own settings.
