Hi, MisterMoleyMole.

The simplest way to accomplish this is to copy index.html to Outlook's stationery folder (i.e. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Sstationery), then create a new message using that stationery.  This will work fine is the image tags in the html file all use absolute paths and the images are in a location that is accessible by all message recipients.

Ahhh thankyou.

At what point are the images downloaded into the mail ? when they open the message or will the exchange server download them and add them to the message on sending ?

Hi, Gav.

If the image sources are set to a URL (e.g. http://company.com/somesite/image1.jpg), then they'll be downloaded when the message is viewed.  The person reading the message will need to have access to the location the images are stored in.  If they don't, then they'll see a red X in place of each image.  If you want the images to be embedded in the message, then copy all the images to the Stationery folder and change the image source to just the filename (e.g. image1.jpg).
