When sending an email which contains an image with an embedded URL, this works fine when received by Windows Live Mail (for example). However, when received within a webbased email client only the image is shown and the hyperlink is not available. How can this be preserved ?

the image should be wrapped in basic html tag.

example
<a href="#" ><img src="" border="0" /></a>

this works in all email browsers.

I have tried format <a href="#" ><img src="" border="0" /></a>

..using..

Dim htmlView As AlternateView = AlternateView.CreateAlternateViewFromString(as above format)
msgMail.AlternateViews.Add(htmlView)

Is there any reason why this should be different ?
