images from wp post wont display in email

images from wp post wont display in email

(OP)
when my subscribers get an email regarding a new post the images in that post wont display in the email.

i tried a few different subscribe plugins and still occurs.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/subscribe2/

https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-subscribe/

what i'm noticing is the image from a post isn't showing up in the email... this is happening on both plugins i tried...

not sure why the image won't display...

any help?

RE: images from wp post wont display in email

Define "wont display in the email."

Because there could be a multitude of reasons and symptoms.

Most of which probably have nothing to do with Wordpress OR the 'plugin'

hi chris.

thanks for responding.

yea after trying a few plugins i am figuring its not the plugin either. what i mean is every email that is sent when a new post is created...the email doesn't display the image from the post...just doesn't show up... its blank.

RE: images from wp post wont display in email

Without seeing the code that is being produced in the email and knowing what client(s) are not rendering the images it is impossible to offer any useful advice.

right.. that makes sense...


i did find two other people having the same problem.. but with no resolve.

see here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/in-email-cant-...

its hard to post code because there is none that i am aware of. but i can go through the process in detail.

this is my blog: http://blog.rossow-web.com/

> notice the subscription text box...
> after subscribing to my blog the user will get an email each time a new post is created.


PROBLEM:
those emails that sent out... include are the information from the post but not the image.

i am using Mozilla thunderbird as my email client... but the email address i'm testing with is gmail. so i view the email in a browser to see the gmail version and then in Thunderbird. im up to date on Thunderbird. both have the same problem.

this subscriber plugin [ https://wordpress.org/plugins/email-subscription/ ] is a bit slow...in sending emails... maybe its my ISP traffic at the moment..

well i sent a few emails which i got because i subscribed too with my gmail account...

let me know what you think...

RE: images from wp post wont display in email

the easiest start is to post the source code of a received message that you consider broken. most email clients will let you look at the raw source. in the web version of gmail you click the down-arrow and select "show original". desktop clients tend to have options to 'view source' or view raw etc

that will tell us whether the links that the plugin is producing are broken; or whether it is trying to embed the image in the mail or what.

if the links are broken then there may be a conflict between an image uploading plugin/gallery and the mailing plugin; or perhaps only the wordpress (relative) links are being included and no base declaration being provided, thus the email client knows not where to look for the image. All is fixable if we know what the problem is.

RE: images from wp post wont display in email

(OP)
jpadie thanks for the detailed reply.....

ok...something to note: not sure if this will matter.. but the current plugin i'm have installed isn't showing the typical broken/missing image ..

Mozilla Thunderbird 31.4.0

RE: images from wp post wont display in email

It is not embedding any images at all, it is simply sending a link to the post.

The other thing you should be aware of is that your email is triggering a spamassassin rule on our mail server.

HEADER_FROM_DIFFERENT_DOMAINS

This because the script is sending from your user account on the server

envelope-from <rossxxxx@serv01.siteground292.com> but the From: header is;

From: "Admin at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" <xxxxxxxxxxxxx@rossow-web.com> you should set WP up to send via an authenticated SMTP server instead of the default sendmail on the server.

i'm not sure what you mean by " email is triggering a spamassassin rule on our mail server. "

and how would i "set WP up to send via an authenticated SMTP server instead of the default sendmail on the server." ?


ok i deactivated that plugin and installed ' subscribe2 ' --> https://wordpress.org/plugins/subscribe2/

RE: images from wp post wont display in email

in your post of 21:25 there is no image either attached or linked. As Chris says

in the post of 23:20 the image is linked in an <img> tag and works fine. Some email clients might not show these images without the user expressly OK'ing them. Likewise some email clients ignore html so it is a good idea to send email as multipart (with a text only version too)

in the post of 23:33 I see no images either linked or embedded.

I agree with Chris that you should have WP send email via a proper authenticated smtp gateway, such as a gmail account. you _must_ ensure that the headers correspond too, otherwise touchy email clients may flag it as spam.

i'm pretty sure that I've written and posted a plugin to force WP to use gMail before. and if I did so it would have been here most probably. search in this forum. there's quite probably a WP hosted plugin to do so too.

i'm not sure what you mean by " email is triggering a spamassassin rule on our mail server. "
Okay, assuming you are not in the remotest aware of what Spam Assassin is

Spam Assassin (SA) is a mail filtering application that 'hooks' into email servers and uses a combination of Regular Expressions and Bayesian scoring to analyse the SMTP datastream as it arrives at the server. This cumulative score is then used to determine the probability of the message being 'spam' or not.

One of the 'built in' scoring functions is to check whether the message came via a mail server with a host name that matches the domain name and TLD of the sender's email address. Because your messages are sent via a freely available script { X-Mailer: PHPMailer 5.2.7 (https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/) ] and has different "From:" and "EnvelopeFrom:" mail headers, messages sent from your blog have a higher probabilty of being "Spam Filtered" by ISPs and mail providers.

In addition to this the presence of external images/URL in the message, mail clients that use the X-Spam... headers may block the images and/or URLs or shunt the message directly into a 'spambox' (Hotmail/Live mail/Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo etc).

The less 'spamlike' you can get, makes for a better delivery rate, and; as a side note, giving users/subscribers the full post and image in their email can or does mean that they have absolutely no need to even visit your blog and if you display advertising to offset or recoup some or all of the hosting or development costs can defeat the purpose of even having subscribers.
