ASP.net Include image in body of email (System.Net.Mail)

Hi
I am trying to include an image from the Resources folder of my ASP.net website in the html body of my email.
The first line below, which gets an image from another site worked, but the second line, where I try to get the images from my site resources didn't

            oHBody = oHBody & "<img src=""http://www.beansoftware.com/Images/Logo.jpg"" alt=""Logo"" "
           
            Dim oImagePath As String = Server.MapPath("~/Resources/Q.jpg")
            oHBody = oHBody & "<img src=""" & oImagePath & """ alt=""Logo"" "

surely because your oImagePath contains a local (c:\intepub\yourfile.ext) reference which is not valid from the client view.

Give a try to
Dim oImagePath As String = HostingEnvironment.MapPath("~/Resources/Q.jpg")

Open in new window
