Images are not appearing in my lasts email tests. That’s strange because I use Email on Acid for 3 years now and I never had such an issue. My code style is the same as ever and image blocking option is disabled, so I don’t understand. Here’s the link to reach this email online :

And the test results link :

Thank you for your answer

Hey composjuliot

Thanks for joining the EoA forums grin

Could I ask if you’re testing with relative image paths or full image paths?

Many thanks

I took a look at your code, and the image paths are indeed relative. You’ll need to use absolute image paths for email testing (as well as your final send). Hope that helps!

Ok, I have always proceed with relative images paths and since now it was not a problem (I must deliver my email like that to the customer). I will change it and tell you if it works again. Thank you for your answers

Thank you for your advice, I’ve change my settings to “Automatically convert my relative URL references to absolute when I submit a URL for testing” and it works again, I know it is not recommanded but I’ll work faster with it and can deliver the proper email to my customer.
