Sending HTML mail to Notes clients

We are trying to send HTML formatted email to Lotus Notes clients. The emails arrive OK, but the pictures seem to go missing. The pictures are simply a URL that points to our web site.

Is there anything special that we (the sender) or the recievers of the email should be doing to enable these emails to go through?

TIA Mike

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're sending to notes 5 or notes 6 users, try sending the message as MIME rather than HTML.

The user's on the notes side, or particularly their administrator has some things they can do to keep the formatting, but from outside its difficult.
