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


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.

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!

You are welcome. :)
