Letting a user upload their own profile picture, resize it, crop it, and save it, from inside SOGo, would be great.

Gravatar doesn't work for the EU, the privacy laws in the EU ban Gravatar because Gravatar logs user IP, email and geographical location, which isn't allowed by EU internet privacy regulations, so a feature to allow you to disable Gravatar had to be added to SOGo, see here:

SOGo should probably save the user photo to the LDAP directory, or Active Directory, in the attributes "jpegPhoto" and "thumbnailPhoto".

Here's a PERL script to let you save your own JPEG photo to your user entry in LDAP.

It's available in the PERL package "perl-jpeg", install it by doing:

# cpan install /perl-jpeg/

Leaving it as an exercise to connect "" to SOGo for the purpose of letting users upload their own profile picture.

More information:

* jpegPhoto: "This attribute is used to store one or more images of a person using the JPEG File Interchange Format" - no maximum size, yet probably SOGo should reduce size until less than 100KB.

* thumbnailPhoto: "Picture" - maximum size 102400. Attribute field is created when Exchange is installed to the domain, or schema for ActiveDirectory is updated to 2008 R2.

If I'm not mistaken, any Gravatar associated with your email address should
show up in SOGO. And of course it works others across different domains.
Quite a nice feature.

Quoting Ivan Gonzalez

I will love to see this on sogo

1. Allow users to “upload” their own photo image (admin panel on/off)
2. Live Chat with users within the same domain, see who is online
(admin on/off)

For chat, check out They have a Sogo
