I was viewing the source code of an email which arrived with a picture.  What does this line mean and how do you interpret it?

    When you see src="cid:......" this means that the image is attached to the email and stored in the mimepart with the id as identified after cid:.

    When you see src="http://someurl" this means that the image is not included in the email, but is run of a website.

    I see.  I thought it was some kind of hex code.
