Animation in e-mail messages using Outlook

We need to send e-mail via Act! using an image that is gif animated. This picture displays static when sending messages. Please advise if anyone has overcome this. We can send a mail to show the gif logo animation.

 

Thank you

Is this for a single email or merge?

 

If a single email, just send directly from Outlook... although, most email clients won't display moving GIFs anyway

It is a mail merge and we want to use the groups created om Act! to send a bulk mail to. We need this animated gif to animate in the Act! mail .... any ideas as to how to do this?  Thank you

Just thought I’d let you know that most newer email clients (eg Outlook 2007) don’t display GIF animations any more.

Have a read of this - http://www.campaignmonitor.com/blog/post/2498/support-for-animated-gifs-in-h/

If you are happy with only some users seeing the animation, there might be a solution for you… let me know
