Mine doesn't. Stick figures is as far as it'll go.

Specific document formats can be attached to an email without any
problems. When exact rendering is important, the appropriate format
(e.g. PDF) can be used. Only a fool would want his email program to
render a UML diagram (which is far more than a cute drawing done in
Visio, in case you hadn't noticed).

and meaningful statements lose precision. -- Lotfi Zadeh
