Depends on the format of the message. Plain Text, obviously, can't have
embedded images. Rich Text and HTML, though, can. Use Insert Picture to
embed a picture while using Word as the mail editor. If using the Outlook
editor, use copy from within an image viewer and paste into the Outlook
message.

I found the answer in another thread

To insert a picture as an attachment
Insert-> File...

To insert a picture in the body
Insert-> Picture...
