I found this code in another website for your problem.
import java.util.Properties;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import javax.activation.*;
public class HtmlImageExample {
public static void main (String args[]) throws Exception {
String host = args[0];
String from = args[1];
String to = args[2];
String file = args[3];
// Get system properties
Properties props = System.getProperties();
// Setup mail server
props.put("", host);
// Get session
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
// Create the message
Message message = new MimeMessage(session);
// Fill its headers
message.setSubject("Embedded Image");
message.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));
message.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(to));
// Create your new message part
BodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
// Set the HTML content, be sure it references the attachment
String htmlText = "<H1>Hello</H1>" +
"<img src=\"cid:memememe\">";
// Set the content of the body part
messageBodyPart.setContent(htmlText, "text/html");
// Create a related multi-part to combine the parts
MimeMultipart multipart = new MimeMultipart("related");
// Add body part to multipart
// Create part for the image
messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
// Fetch the image and associate to part
DataSource fds = new FileDataSource(file);
messageBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));
// Add a header to connect to the HTML
// Add part to multi-part
// Associate multi-part with message
// Send message
