SMTPit Pro

Next Generation Email plug-in




The SMTPit_SetInlineImage function is similar to the SMTPit_SetAttachment function. This function allows you to attach a graphic image file from your hard drive or network to the current email being sent. SMTPit Pro takes this graphic and makes it an inline graphic image for you to use in your HTML email. You must specify the full path and filename of the image. You can assign more than one file with this function by separating the file names with the paragraph mark or, if in a field, with a return. You can also reference a container field to assign an image in it. If you have Inline Images assigned in the Configuration Dialog, they will always be sent with your email, and they will be added to the email first. If you do not assign an HTML Body, then an HTML email will not be sent and these Inline Images will be ignored.

Note, the Inline Images set with this function can only be used in the following HTML tags:

<img src=“”>
<input src=“”>
<body background=“”>
<table background=“”>
<tr background=“”>
<td background=“”>
<th background=“”>
