How to create an HTML MIME with embedded images

P: n/a
Sorry for the cross postings, but I'm getting nowhere.

Does anyone know how to create a MIME for an HTML email that contains
images? I can create the MIME body parts, but I don't know how to get the
HTML to point to the image parts.

Why would you want to mess with the MIME portions of a message? Let the
mail agent do it. See this for info on writing HTML mesages:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you're referring to using CDO which can be
installed with Outlook (CDO is no longer available as a separate
distribution).
If so, then Outlook would be on the machine and I would much prefer using
that. All I have is POP3 and SMTP access via TCP/IP w/ SSL.
I'm hoping you come back and tell me that there is something released with
every copy of XP that I can use.

Your question is obviously not an Outlook question, so you're better off in
a Windows programming newsgroup.

Take a look at System.Web.Mail, which wraps CDOSYS. This looks like a good place to start -- http://www.systemwebmail.com/
