I tried to embed an image in my cfmail tags. The difficulty is all my images display using a cfm page, eg:
<cfmail from="test@test.com" to="test2@yahoo.com" subject="Image Display" type="HTML">
<HTML><BODY>
.....
<IMG height=195 hspace=10 src="http://www.test.com/image.cfm?id=10916" width=130 align=left>
<IMG height=195 hspace=10 src="http://www.test.com/image.gif" width=130 align=left>
....
</BODY>
</HTML>
</cfmail>

If I view this email in outlook, both image shows up correctly, but, if i view this email from yahoo mail, the first image doesn't show up, i believe it unable CF executable to run and grab the image, maybe i'm wrong.... any workaround this?

Please help!

You need to use
<cfmailparam file = "c:\work\logo.gif" type="image/gif">
And in the html refer to the image like <img src="logo.gif"> to embed an image

if you use a cfm page to return an image you need to read the binary content and server it up with <cfcontent type="image/gif" />
