we converted some image (png) to base64.

When adding it as img into email like this (see html attached) it properly appears nearly everywhere EXCEPT within Outlook.

Any idea on how to achive it?

Hey Thomas,

Welcome to the Email on Acid forums - hope you’re doing well!

Unfortunately, support for base64 is patchy a best. This awesome post by Campaign Monitor should explain further: but if you have any questions let me know!
