Why aren’t my images showing up when I receive an email?

Updated on: February 25, 2015 Category: Images, Troubleshooting

There are several reasons this could happen.

1. Your images are set to be blocked.

Outlook and other email service providers can and do block images from unfamiliar senders. They can also incorrectly route them to SPAM folders. Try whitelisting us – here’s a handy how-to for many popular email clients.

2. You’re running an anti-virus scanner.

McAfee and other virus scanners, while keeping your computer safe, can also go overboard in trying to protect you from viruses. Your best bet is to whitelist us to prevent this from happening.

3. You deleted that image from your Image Library

If you send out an email with Image A and then delete Image A from your Image Library, it will not show up in the email.

4. The image’s resolution is too high

Extremely high resolution images (images in Robly don’t need to be more than 600 pixels wide) oftentimes don’t render on smartphones and other devices. You can see an image’s resolution from the Image Browser tab in your account.

5. You have a company firewall that’s blocking the content.

Check with your IT department! We can always provide you with the IP address and domain name you’re sending from in Robly if need be.
