I want to send Birthday wish email to the user. Sending email without image is working fine for me.
But I want to send the email along with the birthday image (Birthday image between the texts) embedded in it.
Also, every time I send the email, I want to pick the image randomly from the local folder. How can I do this?
Please help me with this.
I am using Microsoft outlook version 2010.
Please go through this link.
Embed Image in Outlook Email
To send random image you can follow the below steps.
- Directory.getFiles(“Local Folder path”) to get all image files and convert String to list.
- Generate a random number as randomNum between 0 and number of files in local directory.
- Get the file path at index from the list using list.Item(randomNum)
- Embed your image in email present at filePath.
@Bharat, Thanks for the reply.
I have gone through the link which you have sent. It contains sending an attachment to the email, whereas I want to embed the image between the email content.
I have followed your steps to select the random image from the local folder, and it worked. Thanks a lot.
Now the same image I want to embed between the content. For which I am concatenating the fetched image between the html body content. For example, if the fetched image is stored in ‘birthDayImage’ variable, then I am concatenating it between the html content using +birthDayImage+. But the received image doesn’t show the content formatting as well as image. It shows only the image link and normal content.
Whereas it does work with outlook version 2013. I am using the version 2010. Is there any solution to make it work in 2010?
You can try this workflow to embed an Image in body. It’s working fine for me, I have outlook 2010 installed.

I tried the same, but it sends the image as an attachment, instead of embedding the image.
I want that image above the “Happy Birthday Once again!” text.
And also formatting is also not taking place. Could you please tell me what exactly I need to do? Because everything else is working. But the formatting and image is not happening
