Probably you have to change the format of the message to HTML.  The exact 
steps to do that depend a bit upon your version of Outlook, which you 
haven't told us.

And what button would that be in your secret version of Outlook?

Is the insert point (where is the mouse cursor) currently active in the
*body* of the e-mail message?  You cannot add pictures to the headers.
References to them go in the body.

Show buttons on one row grayed out
I am using OL 2003 and trying to customize it a bit. When I clicked the arrow at the end of the standard toolbar. I noticed the option to "Show buttons on one row".
