Most modern email clients do not do so by default unless the sender is on your safe list.
According to CC, I found that only on "Outlook" if images are turned off it is an issue.

As with every means of human commutations, up to and including face to face conversations, there are all manor of reasons why people donít get the message.

Even in a face to face conversation they may not get the message. There personnel agenda may just blocks you out. As the level and complexity of the type of communication expands the percentage of incompletion of the transfer of information also increases.

With e mail we have introduced or are confronted with several types of road blocks that recipients may chose to use or are victims of such as blocked sender, allowing their server to overflow, typing errors of the addressee, ignored second and third dummy address we give out, and just plain lack of usage by the recipient.

As one who has sent out several mass e mailings to the general membership I can attest that a significant number of those e mails were never opened or returned as bad addresses. It is not a perfect system; then again there is no perfect system. However it is a very good system for those who chose to use it. It is clearly faster and cheaper than the previous mailings that in its selves were only partially effective.

Rather than charging Jackson Center to FIND a given member through some form of investigation I would assume any Officer interested in completing his or her responsibilities towards their members would insure that their address was correct and more importantly use the system.
