Hi!
I'm using this script in a google doc to send myself an email every day.
How can I include an image in the body of the email?
Thanks!
function myFunction() {
  var subject = "message";
  var message = "This email was sent at " + new Date();
  var recipient = "xxx@gmail.com";

  MailApp.sendEmail(recipient, subject, message );
}

you can mention the image path in the "src" attribute

function myFunction() {
  var subject = "message";
  var message = "This email was sent at " + new Date();
  message += "<img src='http://www.google.com/images/srpr/logo3w.png' alt='Smiley face' height='42' width='42'/>"
  var recipient = "xxx@gmail.com";

  MailApp.sendEmail(recipient, subject, message );
}

Okay, I put the file in my Dropbox, so google can access it.
Now, I get an email that contains the following:

This email was sent at Mon Mar 19 2012 16:24:15 GMT-0400 (EDT)<img src='http://dl.dropbox.com/u/58086246/memvav.png' alt='Mem Vav'  
width='420'/>

I don't see the image at all.
Why could this be?

Here is my function (with email address changed):

function myFunction() {
  var subject = "This should be for a...";
  var message = "This email was sent at " + new Date();
  message += "<img src='http://dl.dropbox.com/u/58086246/memvav.png' alt='Mem Vav' width='420'/>"
  var recipient = "xxx@gmail.com";

  MailApp.sendEmail(recipient, subject, message );
}

It looks like the email contains the 'text' of html, but is not formatted as html. Why could this be?
