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

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.

Also.. ensure that the attachments are not getting stopped at a firewall of security point when going to the notes clients.  All or almost all notes clients are protected behind a firewall that restricts certain attachments and attachment types.  You could check with network security to see if this is an issue...

I'm still not sure where the problem lies, but these comments did help narrow down the problem for us.
