Hi Rajan.B

Below sample code is used to send a email with images like header, logo by using LinkedResource & AlternateView (instead of using Mailmessage.body), and we can embed a image in a email attachment.
protected void Send_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string strSMTP = "*********";
int Port = **;
MailAddress from = new MailAddress("test1@test.com");
MailAddress to = new MailAddress("test2@test.com");
MailMessage msg = new MailMessage(from, to);

AlternateView avView = AlternateView.CreateAlternateViewFromString(EmailBody(), null, MediaTypeNames.Text.Html);

string Imagepath = Server.MapPath(@"Images/header.jpg");

LinkedResource Lr = new LinkedResource(Imagepath, MediaTypeNames.Image.Jpeg);
Lr.ContentId = "Header";


msg.Subject = "Test Subject";
msg.BodyEncoding = Encoding.ASCII;
msg.IsBodyHtml = true;
msg.SubjectEncoding = Encoding.UTF8;
SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient(strSMTP, Port);
smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = true;

public string EmailBody()
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
sb.AppendLine("<div><img src=\"cid:Header\"></div><br>");
sb.AppendLine("<p>Hello All, test mail</p>");
sb.AppendLine("<p><i> *** This is an automatically generated email, please do not reply *** </i></p>");
return sb.ToString();
