Should tracking pixel be placed at start of email for when Gmail clips messages?
With Mosaico templates, it isn't that difficult to reach Gmail's limit of 96-102kB with an email newsletter, after which your email message is clipped and not displayed in full. This is unfortunate in itself, but it also breaks open tracking as the tracking pixel is only embedded at the very end of the message and thus isn't fetched unless the reader clicks "View entire message".
Would it be worthwhile to consider putting the tracking pixel at the start of the message to avoid this issue? Obviously, less than ideal for those who don't display images, but I'm not sure how these two might balance out or if there is a clever way to have the best of both worlds.
I'd be happy to provide a patch, but not sure what the best way forward is here.
