My guess is that your mail client -- the one that you happen to test the
message under -- prevents images from being displayed. Older versions of
MS-homebred applications are the exception as they have a poor notion of
security. Reference to remote images is a common characterstic of spam,
whereby your IP address leaks to the Web, informing the spammer where you
are and whether your E-mail account is alive.

If you are not sure whether the above is the cause for your woe, have a
thorough look at your mail client's settings. Additionally, you can test
your HTML-formatted E-mail[1] by making it a Web page and testing it in
your Web browser.

Hope it helps,


[1] Personally I despise HTML-formatted E-mails, but different strokes for
different folks.
