If i add or insert an image to an email does that image need to be stored on a server with global references in order for all receipents to be able to view the inserted image?

Do all reader of my email automatically see the inserted image(s).

Hi Mike

Either option is OK.

There are two ways to add an image into a message:

1. Embed it into the message

This sends the image along with the message. In MLK click "Insert Image" on the message sending toolbar and browse for an image on your computer.

- Everyone will see the image immediately
- Message less likely to be flagged as Spam

- Your message will take longer to send (imagine you are sending a typical message of around 20KB. You decide to attach 3 x 200KB images. Your message is now 30x as large and will take 30 times as long to send)

2. Link to an image on the web

This tells the email software where to download the image and so it is downloaded only when the message is displayed. To do this in MLK, click the small down arrow beside "Insert Image" on the message sending toolbar and choose "Link to Image on Web". Paste the location of message on your web server

- Much quicker way to send
- Can use your web logs to see how many people view your message

- Messages with linked images have a higher Spam ranking
- Most email software (Outlook, Gmail, etc) will disable linked images by default. So a user needs to confirm their display before they are shown

Hi Nigel

The 'insert image' image option is not available when I click on 'New Mail'. (I can see it, but it is very 'deactivated'.

I just downloaded a 60 day trial that why?

Best wishes

Hi James

Under the Edit menu of the "New Email" window, please choose the "HTML" option. Note that HTML is not available if your sending method is to send "Via your default Email Software" (as MAPI does not support it). You need to be using Outlook, Amazon SES, SMTP, or MLK's SMTP Server.
