What does this mean? src=cid

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?

src="cid:000a01c66eb8$b1877440$c4ce2755@fndme.cjpok"

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
