In the body of an HTML e-mail I send

<img style="display:block" alt="Revel Resorts | AC NJ" src="http://revel.mydelphic.com/sites/all/themes/revel/images/r_01.jpg" border="0" height="128" width="20">

which renders as an image.

But viewing it in an email I get

<img style="display:block" alt="Revel Resorts | AC NJ" border="0" height="128" width="20">

The src attribute is removed entirely. Anyone know what I may be needing to do to avoid this?

Your code is most probably sanitised by Google. –  Jacob Jan Tuinstra Mar 6 '13 at 17:24
I'm sending the email, I am looking for things I can do on my end so images show up for others. –  lathomas64 Mar 6 '13 at 18:01
Does this happen even if the receiver uses something else than GMail, like a desktop email client? –  Vidar S. Ramdal Feb 24 '14 at 13:06
They now download the images to their own server and serve those to the user instead of the original source. (The img src will be something like ci4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/longstringofletters The image listed in the question is 404, which may be why nothing is showing up (nothing for Google to proxy.) –  Andrew Maiman Oct 31 '14 at 12:07
