How to show embedded images in received email messages

Dear everyone,

I have built a VB application to process incoming email. The VB application reads MS Outlook's Inbox and shows the contents of the messages in a Webbrowser control. However, due some internal workings of Outlook, when a message contains embedded images, the references to those images are replaced by cid:{83847649393903} (or something like that) and the embedded images themselves are shown as attachments.

My question: how can I show the actual images in the right place?

In other words: how can I find out which cid was assigned by Outlook to what image? (because a message can have several embedded images, so I don't know which attached image belongs to which cid).

Hi keimpe,

This page has a good description of how the association is made: http://peach.ease.lsoft.com/scripts/wa.exe?A2=ind0503&L=emo-newsletter&P=59

And this page has an example of how to get the associations: http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=52


Cheers!
