ATTACH URL for file actaully on web not on local HDD

Hi, I am using the following code

     dim xs
     xs = """" & "http://www.myURL.com/prodimg/" & rstProduct.fields.getValue("Image") & """"    
     Set myMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
     myMail.AttachURL xs , rstProduct.fields.getValue("Image")
     myMail.bodyFormat = 0
     myMail.mailFormat = 0
     myMail.From = "here@there.com"
     myMail.To = "craig@anyway.com"
     myMail.Subject = "TESTING"
     myMail.Body = HTML
     myMail.Send
     Set myMail = Nothing

I have the following code in the HTML build up

HTML = HTML & "<td width=304><img border=1 src=" & """" & rstProduct.fields.getValue("Image") & """" & " width=300 height=300></td>"

I am trying to get the image to be embeded into the mail so that it can viewed by the recipient without them having to be online, I keep getting a page cannot be displayed error from the server.... any ideas...

BTW what do I have to do to my local machine running PWS to be able to test this code, or does it need to run on an NT server for the CDONTS function to work, its a real pain having to upload the files to my ISP to test it.

Regards

Craig

The recipient must be online in order to collect the email so your requirement "viewed by the recipient without them having to be online" seems nonsensical.

If the recipient has collected the email (online) and the image is specified using a fully qualified URL, the image will be cached so that recipient can view it offline anyway. You do not need to embed it.
