sending mail along with embedded image using asp.net

I have already used following but it can't work

Dim EM As System.Net.Mail.MailMessage = New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage(txtFrom.Text, txtTo.Text)
Dim A As System.Net.Mail.Attachment = New System.Net.Mail.Attachment(txtImagePath.Text)
Dim RGen As Random = New Random()
A.ContentId = RGen.Next(100000, 9999999).ToString()
EM.Subject = txtSubject.Text
EM.Body = "<body>" + txtBody.Text + "<br><img src='cid:" + A.ContentId +"'></body>"
EM.IsBodyHtml = True
Dim SC As System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient = New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient(txtSMTPServer.Text)

If you are using .NET 2 or above you can use the AlternateView and LinkedResource classes like this:

string html = @"<html><body><img src=""cid:YourPictureId""></body></html>";
AlternateView altView = AlternateView.CreateAlternateViewFromString(html, null, MediaTypeNames.Text.Html);

LinkedResource yourPictureRes = new LinkedResource("yourPicture.jpg", MediaTypeNames.Image.Jpeg);
yourPictureRes.ContentId = "YourPictureId";

MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();

Hopefully you can deduce the VB equivalent.
