Here is an example using the Indy components.
This example shows how to create an HTML mail
with an inline, included jpg image.

var
  idAttach: TidAttachment;
  idText1: TidText;
  idText2: TidText;
  p: TidMessageParts;
  slBody: TStringList;
begin
  idMessage1.Recipients.Add;
  idMessage1.Recipients[0].Address := 'girlswants_me@yahoo.com';
  p := idMessage1.MessageParts;
  slBody := TstringList.Create;
  try
    // you can actually load the body from a RichEdit with
    // slBody.Text := RichEdit1.LinesText;
    slBody.Add('<html>');
    slBody.Add('<head>');
    slBody.Add('</head>');
    slBody.Add('<body>');
    slBody.Add('<br /><br /><b><font color="red">Here is the image:</font></b><br /><br /><br />');
    slBody.Add('<img src="cid:sm101yellow.jpg" />');
    slBody.Add('</body>');
    slBody.Add('</html>');
    idText1 := TidText.Create(p, slBody);
    idText1.ContentType := 'text/html';
    idText2 := TidText.Create(p);
    idText2.ContentType := 'text/plain';
    idText2.Body.Text := '';
    // This shows how to add an attachment
    idAttach := TidAttachment.Create(p, 'c:\sm101yellow.jpg');
    idAttach.ContentType := 'image/jpeg';
    idAttach.ContentDisposition := 'inline';
    idAttach.ExtraHeaders.Values['content-id'] := 'sm101yellow.jpg';
    idMessage1.Body.Assign(slBody);
    idAttach.DisplayName := 'sm101yellow.jpg';
    idMessage1.ContentType := 'multipart/mixed';
    idSMTP1.Connect;
    idSMTP1.Send(idMessage1);
  finally
    idSMTP1.Disconnect;
    slBody.Free;
    Showmessage('done');
  end;
end;

Sorry for the delay girlswants_me....
In the zip file there's a demo too where you can look for a complete example on how to use it.
Let me know if you really used my suggestion or the EddieShipman one, because in this case points should be splitted to him.
