I’ve set up a test campaign, just to make sure everything goes smooth.
I’ve received the email without problems, but when I check the Reports inside MailChimp, I see 0% Open Rate… which is of course not accurate as I’ve opened the mail (also enabled ‘show images’).
I did not find too much information on this online either and they don’t have support for free users…
Anybody could give me tips on where the problem could be ?
You need to turn linked images on before the sender of the email can tell whether you opened the email. By keeping linked images off people avoid letting spammers know their email address exists if they accidentally open the email. The open count you see will only include those people who have either specifically enabled linked emails that you send them or who don’t care if spammers can tell if they opened a spam email.
