Embeded Objects


The Background:  I'm a GUI developer and I need to use lots of images and screen shots to communicate.  Typically my emails look like:
 
     Description
       <image>

     Description
       <image>


Here's the problem, my boss is complaining that these are embedded images rather than attachments.  Apparently, they are too large for his dial in line.    


Is there a way for me to send them as attachments to him?  And embeded Objects to everyone else?  What is the best way to accomplish?

Would this be a script that:
    Identifies problematic recepient is on my To: line
    Builds a new message with only text.
    Loops through all embeded objects and tags them on as an attachment.  
    Sends this new email version to him.

Have you tested this to prove that having them as attachments will actually be faster for him?

Have you tried setting his contact profile up to only send "plain text" messages to this recipient?

See: http://www.expita.com/nomime.html

Additionally, don't use MS Word as you email editor.

How do you do this?   When I look at this contact, I see no tab / setting that allows me to specify an email format unique to this recipient.     Please explain....

Change Your E-mil Editor On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab. Click to remove the Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail Messages check box, and then click OK.

If the recipient is listed in your Contacts folder, open the contact, then right-click the recipient’s e-mail address in the E-mail box, right-click the recipient’s e-mail address, click Properties on the shortcut menu, and then click to select the Always send to this recipient in Microsoft Outlook rich-text format check box.

If the recipient is not in your Contacts folder, but is in your Personal Address Book, open the recipient’s entry in your address book, right-click the recipient’s e-mail address, click Properties on the shortcut menu, and then click to select the Always send to this recipient in Microsoft Outlook rich-text format check box.
