Imbedded Images in Outlook with Source pointed to user mailbox.

I have a client who received in email in Outlook from another Exchange User with 2 embedded images.  The issue was that the source of the images are from the users exchange mailbox:  (see below):

 <p><font size=2 color=navy face=Arial><span style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:
Arial;color:navy'><img border=0 width=96 height=75 id="_x0000_i1026"
src="https://arswm.company.com/exchange/KSwan/Drafts/Image1.gif"
NOSEND=1><o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

As such the recipient is asked for a login if they attempt to access the image.  Does anyone have any idea how this can occur?

Thanks,

Gordon

Greetings, gshaske !

Are the "embedded" images actually embedded?  Or is the sender sending a link of the image, where the image resides in the sender Exchange mailbox?

Sender should actually send a copy of image, not a link to the image.

Best wishes!

These are actually embedded (Although as you say they are appearing as links).  I guess what I am wondering is how this could occur without actually entering a hyperlink as the user didn't do this.  This is a bit more about how could this occur as the customer wants to know how this could have happened.

Thanks,

Gordon

Gordon, if user is in HTML mode, user can use Insert to insert an image in the email.

Ahh.. I figured it out.  The user must have done a copy of an image in from a draft message in Outlook Web Access and pasted it into a new OWA message.  Doing this will paste a link to the image out of the mailbox folder instead of embedding it and giving it a standard CID reference as Outlook does.

Thanks,

Gordon
