Images in email HTML - load times

Hi all,

We're using Box to serve images within HTML emails.

I've noticed there's a split second while Box resolves the shared image URL to the Box cloud CDN.

This means a 40k image is taking 0.77 seconds to load, creating lag when opening an email and the images being displaying.

Does anyone have any workarounds to speed up the load times?

 

Here's an example:

Get's redirected to:
https://dl.boxcloud.com/d/1/mJ5w19gyGwIPyBJ4LmtqQmeSY1CC6kE-tEIvaqu7CGz-HkJMY18bSgnULnCINMgNMFedHddf...

Many thanks,
Barney Hall
