Preparing an email newsletter- images question?

Likes # 0

I am doing an email newsletter, preparing it in Outlook.
In it, I am inserting a few small gif images.
I am not pointing to a place online but rather including them in the email.

I assume, because I am sending the images in the email they will display immediately?

Outlook blocks all images in an html email message by default, and your recipients would have to load the images with a right click option. This can irritate your recipients, and - like fourm member- I recommend using a different approach.

If you want to look professional, send your recipients an email with a link to a web-page.

I assume that all your recipients have given their consent to receiving emails of this kind - you mustn't send to them unless that's the case.

thanks, yes I have consent and sent many times before.
ok, I might go the way I've always done it: as a PDF attachment.

That's a much better idea.
