I am creating HTML-Mails via Outlook with COM or Excel (VBA). Now I want to put some images (gif or jpg) into these mails.

From php I know, there are two ways. First you can set a link to an icon on a server.
Or you can embed the icon into the mail itself.

I want to use the second form. In php I would use something like this in the code
<img src="cid: hugo.jpg">
and use php-code to embed the binary-data.

Now my question. How can I put icons/images into a HTML-Outlook-mail per COM or VBA?

Has anybody a tip for me?
