    Hosting email images on our own server - any issues with this?

    Bobby Masjedi

      Hey all,

       

      Question about hosting images that we use in a daily account update email we send to our clients.

       

      Engineering put the email together and handles most of the maintenance, they also launch the campaign through the API. They're planning to host the images on our Amazon S3 server rather than in the marketo design studio.

       

      Can anyone think of any issues this may cause? Only thing that occurred to me was that marketo may use these images to know whether someone opened an email or not, though I'm not sure if it just uses a blank pixel for that instead.

       

      I found an old post where Josh Hill recommended hosting all email and landing page images on Marketo servers, but no details. Would love to find out the reason.

       

      Thanks!
