HTML Email Newsletter - Yahoo not displaying images
I have an HTML newsletter that I am sending by PHPList.
I have sent it to my Yahoo account and the email includes no images but the layout format of the email is fine (it's a table layout). Yahoo says that it's enable the HTML images but obviously for some reason it hasn;t displayed them.
I've tested the HTML newsletter page in Firefox, IE and the popular mail clients like Outlook and Thunderbird and they all appear fine - any ideas why Yahoo is not displaying the images?
Thanks for the help in advance

Does Yahoo think the images are "beacon" images? That is, are they being sent as inline attachments or are they referencing an external file? If an external file, does the URI have a GET variable?Big Change Coming Soon - if you want your PMs save them now!

Yahoo, Gmail and many other webmail services will disable some or all images in html enabled messages until such time as the user decides to turn them on. Outlook 2003+ also does this.- Ted S

Thanks for the replies, guys.
The images are absolutely referenced to my webspace so this shouldn;'t be a problem.
Well, I may as well just send it, if theres no way of getting round it.
