Gmail will disable area map markup, so image hotspots simply wont work. With so many free email service providers disabling image display by default, image links are a fundamental usability issue.

A work-around is to design the image so that the hotspots can be sliced and placed into table td cells. Wrap a href tag around each image and set border to 0. If the gmail receiver has images disabled, the links still won't work I believe. If images are set to display, you're in luck.
