        Yes - nothing wrong with it.
        However, whether everyone implements it, I don't know.
        Exactly. I had a lot of frustration developing a custom PL/SQL SMTP and MIME interface dealing with MS Exchange as it kept on reformatting mails I delivered to it - and then messing the format up. The same e-mail, send via a normal smtp server, arrives fine and renders fine on Linux and Mac (and even Windows) mail readers.

            Anyway I tried it, put the image in the folder in the DB machine, created the Oracle directory and specified in the place and ran. I get a mail but no image. The place for the image is empty, even outline of empty image is not showing.
            Is there an uuencoded Mime body for that image in the e-mail? You can use the "+view raw mail/view mail source+" option of your mail reader to view the actual e-mail that was created.

            Now of the image does not show, the two obvious errors that comes to mind is:

            1 - the image is there, but there is a problem with the Mime header of the image or how the HTML data refers to the image (resulting in the HTML referencing an image that cannot be found)

            2 - the image Mime header and HTML referencing are find and works - but the image encoding failed (or a blank image was read) and now the mail reader renders an invalid/empty image


            By looking at the raw e-mail, you can confirm the image's Mime header and check whether the uuencoding is there and whether it is correct size wise (the uuencode package in PL/SQL has a size limit on the amount of raw/binary data it can encode a chunk at a time).
