Decorative Images in Outlook Email

I know how to add alt text to an image in an Outlook email, but is there a
way to designate an image as decorative? In HTML, I would give it alt="". I
think if I leave the alt text field empty in the email, JAWS still tries to
say the file name of the image. Is there something I can do to the image to
ensure that JAWS ignores it?
