HTML - Do you use absolute paths for newsletter links and images?
  v1.0 Posted at 8/06/2018 8:03 AM by Tiago Araujo
Newsletters should always use absolute references to all links and images within the HTML. Relative paths don't contain the server information so users see a broken link/image - the outside email application won't find the where the file is.

<a href="/ssw/Company/ContactUs.aspx "><img src="/SSW/images/SSWLogo.png"></a>

Figure: Bad example - using relative paths for both link and image on a newsletter
