Delphi 7 and latest Indy 10 snapshot.

I've setup a simple test program to send an email with an embedded image.
I've used the code snippet from your blog for the "related" attachments.
This all seems to work fine apart from one small oddity.

In outlook when the mail arrives it has a paper clip symbol next to the
envelope icon. This normally indicates that the mail has an attached file.
When I open the mail I see the image in the body of the email and no
attachment (as expected). Any idea why Outlook thinks the mail has an
attached file ?
