How Do Popular Email Clients Handle Image Maps

Campaign Monitor tested how image maps perform in the popular email clients. This is what they found:


The results indicate that it’s not a good idea to use image maps. Specifically because of the following issues:

  • The frequency in which images are disabled
  • Image maps and their respective images don’t marry well and therefore pose accessibility issues for those visually impaired
  • Gmail—a very popular email client—doesn’t support them consistently
