This has been driving me nuts. Normally I only send text-only mail to
customer opt-in mailing lists, but we've got a big new product
announcement, with lots of details requiring tables, and so I gave
HTML mail a try.
The only problem is the HTML message I format on OSX only looks right
on each and every single mail program in the world *except* for
Outlook. Its not a Windows/OSX problem since the mail looks perfect
in other mail programs on Windows. (Its got a separately-written text-
only section for people who don't want HTML in their email.)
The specific problem is the images don't show up. (Yes, the
installation can view other HTML mail with images.) I've been
Googling half the morning but haven't found anything.
"We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue,
and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the
facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is
possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: The only
check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against
solid reality, usually on a battlefield."
-- G. Orwell
