Just bc of the nature of such a file and what you're tryin to do, i don't think anyone's gonna help u out on this one..  too closely applicable for malicious and destructive purposes (even though I'm sure you're only acting w/ the best intentions)

Not to mention the bandwidth considerations.

Email a link to the file, or to a page with the Flash file embedded in it.

Another thing to think about is the fact that a lot of people use email programs that don't support plugins. Which IMHO is at it shoud be -- I'm a firm believer that ASCII and the occasional attached image or doc file is plenty for me, thanks.  You want me to look at flashy-flashy, send me a link. ;-)

The answer to your questions:  No...and no.

First...obviously the user has to be online to at least download your email ;)

Second, an SWF file will not render correctly in most circumstances because email programs are not web browsers, despite the fact that many of them are able to read crude levels of HTML.  Security levels have gotten so tight on HTML emails these days that you'll be lucky to even send anything with CSS embedded (Hotmail, for example, strips CSS out for security reasons I won't get into).  Major email software clients also strip out IFRAMES, OBJECT/Embed tags, etc.

You will not be able to open the SWF file automatically due to the above reasons.

No, actually it isn't obvious...was your question not solved?  Are you just closing this question because you were asked to by a moderator?

Ah...after looking at your account, I now understand why you gave me the grade you did....you seem to have a history of giving C grades.  In fact, in every single one of your closed issues you issued a C grade with little or no legitimate explanation for doing so.

You should know that giving someone a C grade when it's not really justified doesn't exactly encourage others to help you out in the future.  You're likely to get a bit of a negative reputation on this board...but you knew that, because someone else had advised you of the same thing.
