Where is best place to host the images that are in an email?


The goal is to improve successful deliverability and reduce being blocked by recipient mail servers.

In regards to where the images in an email are actually hosted, where would be the wisest place to host the linked images:

• On the server that Mail List Manager is on

• On the destination website (the place that clicking a hyperlink in the email will take you to)

The potential problem with this is speed, as that server is is feeding the images to 100,000 emails — while at the same time people are clicking through to the destination website. If this is the same server it could slow down that server and create a negative user experience.

• On a third server (that is not the MLM server or the destination website server)

Again, the main goal is to successful deliverability and reducing the chance of emails being blocked.

Thank you.
