Well Im new here , but have a real problem.

I create  HTML pages with embedded images and send them off as MIME/multipart etc. mail through active server pages.

So far so good. All PC users see the mails with 2 embedded images at correct positions using windows e-mail .

However all Mac users receiving this mail have a problem,  then MAC mail show embedded images just as a box , the 2 images become attachements of the email.

If a PC user forwards such a  received HTML e-mail to a MAC user , the MAC Mail sees the 2 images are correctly displayed.

 

Thanks for hints and comments .

    Hi & a warm welcome to the forums!

     

    Have you compared the RAW Source of the original & the Forwarded ones?

    See if your Mac friend will allow & enable Screen Sharing, that way you can see at a distance without travel...

    I think all they have to do is View Raw Source in Mail, Select All, Copy then paste in a Text Edit Doc.

     

    Small sample...

     

    MIME-Version: 1.0

    Content-Type: multipart/alternative;

              boundary="b1_546369974fe0ba6472663ef07c93d97e"

     

     

    --b1_546369974fe0ba6472663ef07c93d97e

    Content-Type: text/plain; charset = "UTF-8"

    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

    You can either allow you email to be viewed in your profile, you're the only one that can see it, or you can contact me PM or eMail by joining my site...

    If you Right click on the box do get a choice to download picture?

     

    Are you using something like this?

    I usually use Thunderbird to build and send out my HTML emails, but I've had the same problems. Images are not showing up in Mac Mail, but I tested it on my iPhone, the images came up just fine. So I think that Apple should just make it's Mail app up to par or I just go with a third party. Too much of a waste of time.
