    html email & background images

    Is there a way to ensure that a background image is downloaded/displayed in an html email?

    I've tried the html background="http://your.image.here" tag and the inline CSS tag:style="background-image url(http://your.image.here); background-repeat: repeat;"

    Neither method seems to work well across multiple email clients / webmail services. I even tried implementing both at the same time, but that didn't seem to help any.

    Any ideas?

    It's my understanding that most email clients have images turned off as standard so you're having to rely on users having their images switched on to get this to work.
