Email library attachment problem

Are you trying to send HTML email with embedded images?
I'm working up a HOW-TO for www.zope.org on how to do this using the email
package (both inside, and outside Zope).
Not sure why your example isn't working, but perhaps you need multi-part
alternative for sending plain text.
