I am looking to email text messages that instead of hiper link I will place a picture (icon) So that the recipient will be able to click on the icon and be linked to another page. (the link should be embeded somehow in the message, not as an file attachment.
Is somebody know's how to do it?

If you are mailing to people who have HTML-enabled mail readers, then you can put HTML tags in your message and link to the picture on your site.
Example:
<html>
Here is my email message....
Click this: <a href="http://www.mypage.com"><img src="http://www.mypage.com/picture.jpg"></a>
</html>

Well, even if the recipient HAS an HTML enabled webbrowser then you still need to specify that it is an HTML type email. I don't know / think that it works with plain HTML. For some real html email you should use te CDONTS object of ASP / VB.
