: I hope Manning's reply would have solved your problem.
: I was just curious to know if you tried the fully resolved URL in the IMG tag as
: strMsg = "" & _
: : "<html><body bgcolor=red>" & _
: : "<a href=""http://www.RealWorldASP.com/""><img src=""http://www.RealWorldASP.com/images/banner/basket.jpg"" border=0 alt=""RealWorldASP"">" & _
: : "</a><p><font face=verdana>Example of a HTML Email with embedded Image<P>" & _
: : request("message") & _
: : "</body></html>"
: In this case, you do not need to AttachURL any images. When the user opens his email [Online], the image is loaded into his mail automatically from the website.
This is heresay, but I've heard most e-mail clients don't allow external images to be loaded. For example, I could embed the following string into an email:
The ID number would be unique to each recipient of the message, and could correspond to their email address in a database. That spamlist.cgi could update a record in that database, effectively saying "the e-mail address that corresponds to ID 100 is active, because the recipient of this e-mail just tried to retrieve an image hosted on my server".
Now the spammers can keep pretty accurate records of how many targets their spam is actually reaching.
