Hello community,

The code posted here worked since a year ago, But I now see this issue. Does anyone have any workarounds or suggestions.



Thank you!

Hi Darren,

I've seen others solve this problem procedurally rather than with code. If the image is publicly visible and inserted in a certain way to the draft inline images should work. Here is some guidance provided to YAMM users https://sites.google.com/site/scriptsexamples/available-web-apps/mail-merge/documentation/known-issues/images-are-broken-in-emails-sent

Yeah, most of the resources you will find online on this subject are outdated.
Before, it was quite difficult to retrieve images from an existing draft and copy them in a new draft.
As shared on Labnol, you had to parse the raw content of the Gmail draft to find the images.

Google added the ability to easily retrieve the inline images in an existing draft via the getAttachments() method on October 30, 2018 (see Apps Script release notes).
