HTML Email – Images will not display in Gmail when sending email newsletter

Here we are, in our HTML Email Laboratory again with another Gmail-specific problem.

Symptom:

Gmail does not display images in an HTML Email.

Culprit: Border Styles. 

Example: style= “border:none;

Because Gmail and other web-based email systems tend to strip out styles – it looks like using a style reference in your IMG tag will cause Gmail not to render the entire image.

What you should just do is use border=”0″ to accomplish the same thing, namely you want to avoid that little blue border that surrounds an image when an anchor link is placed around it. Our tests rendered just fine in Hotmail, Horde, Yahoo and a few other web-based clients.
