Update: Importing an Email with Dynamic Images

BEN RICHARDSON - APR 1, 2005

We’ve just implemented a change that will allow you to include dynamic images in your email campaigns.

Huh?? Glad you asked. Basically, some Content Management Systems (CMS’s) and Ad serving applications reference image sources to a dynamic web page as opposed to an image file. For example:

<img src="http://www.adserver.com/display.php?ad_id=233">

One of our customers pointed out that this was breaking a few of their images when importing.

At first we modified the code to grab the dynamic image and store it locally, but then we realized that if your dynamic images are being tracked through an Ad server or similar technology, it would be better if they stayed on the server.

So in the end we decided that all dynamic images will be fully referenced to your server. Whad’ya think? Prefer it to act differently? Let us know in the comments.

Oh yeah, we sneaked in a little bug fix as well. In some circumstances the bounce reports wouldn’t show the email address of the bounce recipient. That one’s been squashed!
