As usual, Gaskill is dead on target. The trick to getting people to
opening your e-mail is putting something inside that e-mail that
isn't garbage, especially slow-loading, interactive garbage.

Try putting something that's meaningful to them, not you, in there
and see just how much better things get in a hurry.
