most email software and providers nowadays automatically block external images.
The reason for this is that embedded external images can be used (and were heavily abused) to track email delivery, intrude on privacy, and inject hostile code into the browser session.

Therefore, I recommend that you see if you can use embedded inline images with your email provider. I suspect that it will significantly increase your costs because now you pay for the image bandwidth rather than dump the costs on your customers :)

shalomc answered the question. Just because mikow doesn't like the answer much doesn't mean that it shouldn't be accepted as the solution.
