Changing Your Account Picture (Avatar)

To change your avatar or email account profile picture:

  1. Click on the menu in the top left corner of Mailbird window.
  2. Select 'Settings' from drop down menu.
  3. Click on 'Accounts' tab.
  4. Select the account whose profile picture you want to change and click on 'Edit' button.
  5. A new window pops up where you can change the account icon.


If you specifically want to use the avatar or profile picture associated with that account, select the last icon option that shows your account avatar.

To change the avatar you need to either use Facebook Connect so the account uses your Facebook profile pic as the account image or create an avatar on for your specific email account. Once you create an avatar on and sync with your email account in Mailbird it will update and appear under the icons options as seen above.
