How can I ensure that jpeg images embedded in email message are received correctly?

I send a jpeg image embedded in an email, but it doesn't show up when the email is opened in some clients.  It is inconsistent in that some people using gamail can see it and others cant. Also forwarded images don't show up. Is there a fool proof method of sending images in and email so that they show up correctly regardless of the receiving client?

    I would say no, since you have no control over the client's firewall or the client's emial settings.
    It could also be a router or firewall between you and the client that is stripping off the jpeg or between the client and gmail..

    With what was noted above, your best bet would be to have a brief message along with a Web link to the content you want to be seen.
