You can sedn image(s) as attachements, then refer to them in your HTML contents of the message using cid:

Thsi code below shows how to use image to craete background for the HTML based email
I tried this code and it worked for me.
I'm sure you can do the same way with images embedded in the HTML table

Alternaively create the table with images on the server and then
send only link by email - i guess that is what most adverstisers do

import javax.activation.DataHandler;
import javax.activation.DataSource;
import javax.activation.FileDataSource;
import javax.mail.BodyPart;
import javax.mail.Message;
import javax.mail.Session;
import javax.mail.Transport;
import javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeBodyPart;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart;
import java.util.Properties;

public class SendEmailWithImage {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

                       try{
                 Properties props = new Properties();
        props.put("mail.smtp.host","mailserv.mycomp.com");
         Session mailSession = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
        //mailSession.setDebug(true);
         MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(mailSession);
       // Transport transport = mailSession.getTransport();
   MimeMultipart multipart = new MimeMultipart("related");
// first part  (the html)
        BodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();

        message.setSubject("Emailer Test - HTML  mail with images - please confirm");
        message.setFrom(new InternetAddress("my.address@mycomp.com"));
        String htmltext = "<HTML><BODY border=\"3\" background=\"cid:bg\">" +
        "<TABLE border=3 background=cid:bg><p> running testing with embedded images, please confirm to the following email if you can see the images.</p>aman_kebreab@yahoo.com<br>" +
        		"<h1>This is test 1</h1><img src=\"cid:image\"> <br/> " +
        		"<h1>This is test 2</h1><img src=\"cid:image2\"></TABLE></BODY></HTML>";
        System.out.println("html text: \n" + htmltext);
           messageBodyPart.setContent(htmltext, "text/html");
      //<kendm@xilinx.com
      // add it
        multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);
          message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO,
             new InternetAddress("my.address@mycomp.com"));
          //kendm@xilinx.com
          message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.BCC,
                  new InternetAddress("my.address@mycomp.com"));
// second part (the image)
        messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
        DataSource fds = new FileDataSource
          ("C:\\temp\\test\\Example_1.gif");
        messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));
        messageBodyPart.setHeader("Content-ID","<image>");
         // add it
        multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

     // second image
        messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
        DataSource fds2 = new FileDataSource
          ("C:\\temp\\test\\Example_2.gif");
        messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds2));
        messageBodyPart.setHeader("Content-ID","<image2>");
         // add it
        multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);
        DataSource fds3 = new FileDataSource
        ("C:\\temp\\test\\Example_3.gif");
      messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds3));
      messageBodyPart.setHeader("Content-ID","<bg>");
       // add it
      multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

        // put everything together
        message.setContent(multipart);
      //  transport.connect();
        System.out.println("message " + message.toString());
        Transport.send(message);
      //  transport.close();
              System.out.println("message sent");

    }catch(Exception ex){
     ex.printStackTrace();


}
}
}
