Outlook 2003 insert gif as part of html - not an attachment

Hello,

I am running Outlook 2003 and would like to insert a gif file as part of my html message.

Can you please advise how I can do this, as the only options I have are attachments. I want my reciptents to see it when they click on my message rather than opening the attachment.

Thanks

No keep in mind some of your recipents ISP may strip the image from the body of the email and make it an attachment. Not much you can to about that.

Also some of your recipients may have there incoming email as text and in this case they will get the image as an attachment rather then part of the message body.

Hi CrazyOne & Shivsa,

Yes I agree with all comments. I actually forgot as the last time I did this was a year ago when I was sending out a Christmas gif.

Much appreciated!
