I am about to send my first email but when I send it to a few different test addresses the content (images) in my email are coming in as blank boxes and those who receive the email have to load the images for them to show up. How can I make sure my images automatically load? Also, the emails are automatically going into the junk folder of customers email program. Is there a setting in wordpress to help prevent that too? Please advise? Thank you
The spam proble is surely due to your server, which is probably black listed. I suggest to use mailjet or mailgun with their SMTP settings and test a delivery with them. Probably the images are not loaded because the mail is in the junk folder.
Test with one of the providers above, they all have a free plan.
Are those other plans you mentioned to use instead of your newsletter plugin? The whole idea was to control email campaigns from our site instead of using an external mail program. Please advise? Thank you
