Send flash to hotmail

I write some text and include(embed)flash by using cfmail and type= html. Why we using outlook express can view the flash but in hotmail can't? In homtail, i view source and discover that the full statment of below si skipped.
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
          codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab##version=4,0,2,0"
          width="400"
          height="340">
          <param name=movie value="#application.root_url#/member/clubber/recommend/media/intro.swf">
          <param name=quality value=high>
          <embed src="#application.root_url#/member/clubber/recommend/media/intro.swf"
                 width="400"
                  height="340"
                 quality="high"
                 pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"
                 type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
          </embed>
          </object>

The problem with many web-based e-mail providers such as hotmail and yahoo, is that they only allow regular html code such as tables, fonts, etc. and often strip out non-static code from the e-mails, such as javascript, vbscript, flash, stylesheets, etc.  Unfortunately, there is few ways, if any, around this.  That's why most people just provide a link in the e-mail to another site instead of embedding flash, or other non-static content.
