Inlined vs non-inlined images are no different from each other as far as
Indy is conserned.  They are still attachments like any other.  Simply set
the TIdAttachment.ContentDisposition property to 'inline', and the email
reader will handle the rest on its end.

You reference it in exactly the same way as any other MIME attachment -
assign a value to the TIdAttachment.ContentID property, and then refer to
that ID in your HTML using the "cid" syntax (neither of which you are doing
in the code you showed).

I suggest you read my blog articles about HTML messages:
