Default Source code for embedded images

I occasionally receive emails from a customer containing embedded images. I can view these images ok in Outlook but if I save the email as html and then open the same file in I.E or Word I can only see the containers with red X. I have examined the source code for one of these emails and found a line: <img src="cid:image001.jpg@01CC6A1E.26B1C750" width=205 height=99>
I understand that "image001.jpg is the actual reference to the image itself and I know that "img src" is a pointer to where the image resides but I do not understand "cid" and the code following the@ symbol.
I have searched Google for information on this without success.
Please can someone explain how Outlook finds the image in order to display it? Is the image hidden in the email or does Outlook refer to a remote location similar to a weblink for the image file? What exactly does the reference after the @ symbol do? If the image is actually "hidden" in the email then why can't it be displayed when I open the doc as an html file in I.E or Word?

Look forward to replies.
