Hi......again Embarassed

Another slight problem, probably a case of Intel inside Idiot outside Crying or Very sad

Every time I send a newsletter with pictures, the pictures don't get displayed in the received email? But they are there if I preview the newsletter before I send it.

Email client (Thunderbird) is not blocking the picture. Picture frame is there but no picture Confused

Thanks

Is this a localhost XAMPP type of server, or is this professionally hosted remotely?

You need to view to source of the newsletter and see where it is looking for the pictures.

Yes, as Palbin advised...

Check the source for the email. Also, are you sure you or the people complaining actually have HTML enabled in the email client? Many clients have to have this enabled, and even after it's enabled, it might block some images (even though the email seems to be properly formatted with markup).

If you could pull some source with example links to images and post it here between code tags, it would be helpful.

I have a feeling that they are relative and not absolute.

Thanks for your help Very Happy

I tried to send a test newsleter to admin only with two pictures on it.
The pictures are located on the server at
/uploads/image/Banner1c.gif
/uploads/image/darryl.jpg
Checked the folder and files on the server via filezilla, they do exist

Source code
Code:
<p style="text-align: center;"><img height="191" width="476" src="/uploads/image/Banner1c.gif" alt="" /></p>

<p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">Test message to see if pictures are being send</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">&nbsp;</p>
<p style="text-align: left;"><img height="544" width="816" src="/uploads/image/darryl.jpg" alt="" /></p>
<p style="text-align: left;">&nbsp;</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">&nbsp;</p>


Looked at the email, same as before, no pictures beening displayed, here's the source code of the email

Checked the settings in Thunderbird: View - Message Body As - Original HTML

Think we're winning...
I sent another test message, this time linking pictures from my photobucket account.
Sent the message, opened up Thinderbird, email message was there with a message saying "Display remote content", clicked on yes, then the pictures loaded

Palbin nailed it, you are using relative URLs for the image links, you need absolute, so..

Code:
<img height="544" width="816" src="/uploads/image/darryl.jpg" alt="" />


needs to have Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! in the src

Code:
<img height="544" width="816" src="http://www.example-server.com/uploads/image/darryl.jpg" alt="" />
