Mailing lists to broadcast emails to many people are becoming more popular - here is a little tip on something you should avoid
I received an email that looks like this:
Many email programs (such as Outlook) will block images from unknown senders. Why?
Because feeding images from a website is a simple way to find out which email addresses have read the email. Email programs block images to protect your privacy.
However text in an email is not blocked - So if you intend sending a bulk mailing make sure that your most important content is in real text and not an image. And definitely avoid sending a whole message as just images like the example above as:
- image-only mailings are much more likely to be marked as SPAM or Junk
- Recipients who don't recognise you may not trust to un-block the images - and therefore your message is not even read
