you are never sure wath your working path is. It is not garantied. So you have to give tha absolute path, like:

please ignore my upper comment :-))

I see your absolute path is allready in: image_file_name

so perhaps the problem can be this empty string. When you look at example in NotesHelp, they state a NULL at this param:
body.embedObject(EmbeddedObject.EMBED_ATTACHMENT,null, "c:\\notesr50\\notes.ini", "notesini");

sorry again...

the NotesHelp state this is recomanded:
If you are using EMBED_ATTACHMENT, specify an empty string ("").

So I totaly have no idea wath is going wrong...
