I was using Indy 9.0.14 before and could reliably send html mail along with
the embedded images to Yahoo as well as other mail accounts.  Messages were
correctly formatted.

Now I am using a 3 week old development snapshot.  My application compiled
and e-mail could be sent without having to touch any source code after
installing the Indy snapshot.  Unfortunately, a problem immediately occurred
when sending to Yahoo mail accounts.  Images that are supposed to be
embedded into the Yahoo html are now only available as attachments.  I can't
figure out why.  Strangely enough, if I send the very same message to other
mail servers and then open the e-mail with Outlook or Outlook Express, the
image is embedded as it should be.

Does any one have an idea as to why the installation of the latest snapshot
had a bad effect on Yahoo html messages?  Can any one offer any hints as to
what I can check?

Many Thanks!
