If a recipient has “download images off”, images in emails will not show, unless they actively right click and choose to download them:
In our experience, this is rare to see these days. If you are experiencing a problem sending into a corporate organization, there are ways around the issue.
When creating your Email Thermometer template, we’ve provided an HTML only option.
This means Thermometers will display correctly, irrespective of whether images are enabled or not.
To select this template, build your Thermometer and choose the last set of images from the icon sets.
These icons are not images. They are created using code.
When selecting these icons, we will disable your logo image, if you’ve uploaded one. Instead, the text stored in your company name field, within your account settings will be displayed:

If a recipient has automatic image downloads disabled, Thermometer icons will not show unless they actively choose to download them. This is controlled by settings on the recipient’s side and so it is not something that we can override.
As a workaround, add rating descriptions – text which appears under each icon. These words can be color-matched to the icons so that they still grab attention, and ensure recipients understand what each blocked image represents.
