Sending a frontpage page as an email newsletter

I am having problems with the single image that I have on the page. It shows
in the email as a red x.

I have uploaded both the page I am emailing and the image to our website,
however I am still getting the red x.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Right click on the image and see where it points to. I make the mistake
occasionally of pointing it to images/name.jpg instead of the complete
website address.

The image path must be absolute, not relative. By default, FP generates
relative paths. So, when they read it in an email, the path does not point
to the web site.

Okay, I am not 100% sure I understand your answer, but, it seems as if you
are saying by the time the email gets to the recipient, the place taht the
picture is can't be determined, since it is no longer in the context of the
website?

If so (or if not) is there a fix for this?

If I right click on the image in the frontpage pgm, click picture prooperties
and then general, I do see the picture address as images/filename.jpg.

Is this where you meant? If so, is the fix adding the website name before
'images'? I tried that and lost the picture even in the frontpage file.

Sorry for sounding dense.

Thanks,

I thin what Tom is saying is the link should be to
http://mysite.com/images/name/jpg
