Hi,

I was wondering how people create advertising like the amazon.co.uk emails you get. Images are included but they do not show as attachments. If I type code into an email it doesn't work.

You can not do this with JavaScript. Virtually all email clients strip out scripting now for security. You would need to use a server side language that actually sends emails. It is kind of a moot point though. Most email clients now also block embed pictures is most situations. Especially of the sender is not known to the receiver.

any email client that lets you edit the raw html of an html email will let you embed <img> tags. the tag just points to the file, so the user doesn't have to download/archive it.
