    Sending email using DirectEmail including inline images?

      I need Director to send an email with images using the DirectEmail Xtra. The email format is HTML. When I’ve done this in the past I’ve always linked the images via a URL from my own server. This time around the images must be embedded into the email. I know this can be done, MS Outlook does it with stationary. My research so far indicates that the images need to be attached (DirectEmail can do that), then the image source tags need to be changed to the matching attachment ID … I can easily parse the email body and change the tags but where do I find the attachment ID? Also, if I do this will Outlook still flag the email as containing attachments? (it shouldn’t and doesn’t when you send as stationary) If anyone has done this and gotten it to work I would love to know. It doesn’t matter if it only works in Outlook, the email recipients are a limited group, they all have Outlook.

      Here’s a sample of an image tag after it has been sent as stationary:
