How do I avoid embedding images in CDO.message?
Posted on 2007-04-05
This might be a non-question on my part, but I have a little application I use for my news website that generates a newsletter email to let my readers know when the site has been updated (it's an anime review site).
I have about 200 subscribers, who all subscribe through the site, and they can unsubscribe at any time, so it's not a spam-o-matic by any means. (I send about 1 a month).
I'm sending the email through CDO.messages as I understand that's the most efficient way, using the following code:
Set ObjMail = CreateObject("CDO.message")
ObjMail.FROM = rsUser("userEMAIL")
ObjMail.TO = rsRecipient("Email")
ObjMail.Subject = rsCampaign("CampaignName")
I think it's embedding the images, because when I view the source I get this:
So my question is twofold:
Does this mean the image is embedded and If so, is that placing more strain on my server when sending the email?
How can I change the code to ensure that images aren't embedded?
Ideally I want the images to point to my server, so that it will send as efficiently as possible, i.e. without images. I'm hosting on Windows Server Standard 2003.
Any light you guys can shed would be very much appreciated!
