After bemoaning the lack of personal touch from House of Fraser greeting me as [ncgi::value emailaddr_], I got the following email from Racing Green:

Racing Green email

I love it when you call me NULL!

Also you might notice a distinct lack of images showing up in this email (in Gmail). It seems to be because they haven’t properly formatted the URLs of the images. Looking at the source, it’s full of HTML like:
<img src=”http://srg-cms.snowvalley.com/upload/email_assets/NL RG Accessories Banner 11th Nov 08.jpg” alt=”Accessories Offer” style=”BORDER-TOP-STYLE: none; BORDER-RIGHT-STYLE: none; BORDER-LEFT-STYLE: none; BORDER-BOTTOM-STYLE: none” />

I’m guessing Gmail baulks at the unescaped spaces in the URL.
