Getting photos into email

Threaded View
I want to be able to have photos/images appear in the body of the email in
certain places adjacent to certain text.

This is something I have seen in email that I RECEIVE.

I am not referring to attachments. I am not referring to embedded links out
of the email system to some photo/image on a server that needs the cleint to
click on it to view the photo/image. I am referring to a photo/image that is
visible in the email as the client is reading the text without any action
the the clients part.

I use Yahoo as an email client.

Is this something thatcan be done ONLY with certain email client software?
How does one do this?

It's HTML, and the image you are seeing is being pulled off of the
sender's server.  Yahoo, and other web based email, has the option to
not display images, and that's a good thing.  You see, when an image on
another server appears in your email, the other server takes a hit,
showing the referer, in this case, you.  It's a way to track email.  I
have both my web based, and my email client, set to not show images
(unless it is something that I am expecting).

How does one get HTML CODE into email without it being displayed just as
CODE, such as <BR> instead of doing a line break?

Your email client has to support HTML formated email.

Yahoo is webmail, not an email client. All done in the browser. What
capabilities is has is up to yahoo. Try yahoo support pages.

Take care,
