Hi,

This topic appears to have existed previously but I had a hard time understanding the explanations.

My question is this:

I'm creating an electronic newsletter for a subscription list and I want to be able to embed images directly in the body of the e-mail. I have Outlook 2000 and the help says that I should be able to do this pretty easily. But whenever I try to insert an image using the Insert menu the image is posted as an empty field when I actually send the e-mail. I ahve tried to manually cut and paste the image in, but the image seems to be be really distorted when I do this.

Does anybody have any ideas on how I might insert gifs into the body of an e-mail?

Thanks a million in advance, and I apologize for the redundancy in topics.

As per my comments on the other thread relative to this, I think OE is a much better solution for sending HTML mail - and you can use your Outlook address book.

I have trouble with display sizes when using OL2K. OE displays perfectly.
