Email tracking code shows question mark on outlook email

Hi Everyone,

 

I've put a tracking code using hit builder into a HTML email like this: <img src="“http://www.google-analytics.com/collect?v=1&t=event&..."/>

 

It looks fine on Gmail but it shows a question mark on Outlook email.

Does anyone know why?

Hi Cheng,
by default Outlook block image loading on email.
That is the reason why you see a question mark instead of a transparent GIF.

Thanks for the reply. The weird thing is that I also put other image in that HTML email. And it shows all other images successfully except that Google Analytics tracking code

Maybe did you whitelisted the domain that you use for images before?

Hmm Don't think ever did that.. Because it's a tracking code in the form of <img src=""/> , so there are no actual images attached to it. But somehow it work on Gmail, not on Outlook
