If it's an HTML email, then you can just link it in the HTML.  If not, then you will have to add it as an attachment.  Depending on your mail code, this can be easy, or it can mean having to base64_encode the image and hacking out your own multipart/mixed sections.

What's your current email code look like?

Hi, Thanks for your help Rurne

Its using php, i've tried using a simple link but this obviously didnt work :D

A sample of the code used below:

$from3 = "email@domain.com";
$to3 = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['email']));
$subject3 = "Booking Confirmation";
 
$body3 = "";
$body3 = '<img src="http://www.domain.com/logo.jpg" />';
$body3 .= " ";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "Number of Delegates :";
$body3 .= " ";
$body3 .= $delegatenum;
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "Your booking has been confirmed. Thank you.";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "\n";
 
 
$success3 = mail($to3, $subject3, $body3, "From: <$from3>");

What do you get when you send that email?  If it comes through as plain text, you may need to include the appropriate comment type in the mail headers:
$from3 = "email@domain.com";
$to3 = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['email']));
$subject3 = "Booking Confirmation";
 
$body3 = "";
$body3 = '<img src="http://www.domain.com/logo.jpg" />';
$body3 .= " ";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "Number of Delegates :";
$body3 .= " ";
$body3 .= $delegatenum;
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "Your booking has been confirmed. Thank you.";
$body3 .= "\n";
$body3 .= "\n";
 
$headers3 = 'From: <'.$from3.'>'."\r\n";
$headers3 .= 'Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"';
 
$success3 = mail($to3, $subject3, $body3, $headers3);
