If I want to send out HTML emails via MailChimp, would they host images for me or do I have to do it on my own server?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

I'm also interested in having a "if you're having trouble viewing this email click here to view it online" link – George Mauer Jan 12 '11 at 17:18

Awesome thanks a lot! – George Mauer Jan 12 '11 at 18:43

You can upload images in designer view. Than keep URL and use it in advanced view with your HTML. It's not as easy and sleek, but it works.

Check details here.

You can also use Flickr to load images. And edit them with Picnic. Cool features.

The "big famous competitor" that is an alternative to mail chimp is Constant Contact. They also offer the "click here to view this as a web page" option, I recall.
