"base href" in HTML mail ignored - images do not display

In HTML mails image paths can be referenced relative to base URL which can be found in the HTML HEAD.

Explanation and example: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_base.asp

<base href="&lt;a%20href=" http:>" rel="nofollow" target="\_blank"\>http://www.w3schools.com/images/"\>;


eM Client (tested version: 6.0.21289.0) seems to ignore that, images referenced this way are not displayed, which is a major issue.

Hi Stefan,
when formatting an HTML email message, you have to include your advanced formatting in the body of the HTML code, as tags from the header of the emails are ignored (stripped), this is a standard behavior for eM Clients.

All advanced HTML formatting has to be included within the body of the HTML source.

Thank you,

Hi Paul,

thanks, that explains it - even if i do not like it :slight_smile:
