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).
