i think as atachment well whiever way is easier??

you want to send an image as an attachment or in the email body?

in the body … just make an HTML email and put the image in the body with <img> tag

You might want to send both plain text and html versions in the one email and let the user’s email client decide which version to accept.

Some user’s have their email clients set up to accept plain text emails only.

This tute shows how to send plain text and html emails with or without attachments all in the one email.
