You compose new HTML formatted mail and include a picture inside a message body. After the mail is sent, the picture is striped off the mail body.


Reported to the development.
A reason behind it is a name of a directory with extended characters in a path where a picture is located in a directory structure. A workaround is to locate the picture outside of a directory structure with a name having extended characters.
