This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
I have been assigned to make a small program for "Email Notification System" with the images and texts are coming from mysql database. This is used for sales promotion and stuffs like that. Some times attachments also has to be there... I have prepared a code snippet and below is the information. But when i run the code without any images in the background, the email is working so perfectly. The moment, when i put the images code (html part), the email recieved is with blank pages. Kindly let me know how best i can sort out the below issue with your enriched knowledge.
The images are relative to the HTML document, but inside an email client, this stops working.
There are two ways of including images in HTML emails:
1) Embed them. I'd suggest using Apache Commons Email for doing this. However, I think this won't work with background images.
2) Use absolute URLs to some web server. However, most clients block these images by default. You can't work around this, it's a client setting.
So I'm afraid what you want isn't going to work the way you want. You should consider reworking the HTML to use IMG tags instead of background URLs, and then embedding the images.
