I'm working on sending out an html based email, and every time it sends the image src tags and some of the anchor href tags are modified to be relative url's.

Update 2: This is happening between when the body of the email is generated and sent and when it arrives in my inbox.

Update: I am using Postfix on a LAMPP server. In addition, I am using Zend_Mail to send the emails out.

For example, I have a link:

src="http://www.furnituretrainingcompany.com/images/email/highpoint_2009_04/header.jpg"

And it gets rewritten as:

src="../../../../images/email/highpoint_2009_04/header.jpg"

What can cause this to occur and how is it corrected?
