I would swear that was possible in earlier versions of Outlook:

  1. Open New Email in Outlook
  2. ensure HTML Fomat
  3. drag .png file from Windows explorer into the email

i wish the email is now part of the Message but in fact the picture is an attachment.

Is it possible to drop images into the HTML Message?

Does it only act this way with PNG's, or do JPG's act the same way? What bit-depth is the PNG (PNG24, or PNG32 kind of thing)? Do you have Word set as your editor in Outlook? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 6 '13 at 19:48
gif, jpeg, all the same, land as attachments. – thomas Mar 6 '13 at 19:49
If you use "Insert-->Picture" does it insert it in-line? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 6 '13 at 19:52
yes, insert picture works as expected. – thomas Mar 6 '13 at 19:55
You're only trying to drag'n'drop 1 image at a time correct? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 6 '13 at 20:00
