I am doing a newsletter and want to embed a bit of flash in the email using http to the flash file on the website.

When I open the email in Outlook 2003 I get a error saying that my security settings do not allow me to use Active X Controls.

Any suggestions on how to make this work effectively?

The page displays fine through a web browser, but it seems to have trouble with email clients.

Here is the HTML I am using to call the flash:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="200" height="218" id="oxygen_calculator_v1" align="middle">
            <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
            <param name="movie" value="http://www.mcgrath.com.au/automate/emails/oxygen_calculator_v1.swf" />
            <param name="quality" value="high" />
            <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
            <embed src="http://www.mcgrath.com.au/automate/emails/oxygen_calculator_v1.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="200" height="218" name="oxygen_calculator_v1" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

Thanks in advance

I think this is one you could have no control over unfortunately.  It is ultimately up to the end user what can or cannot be run within emails, and it is something Microsoft is particularly tightening down at the moment (especially with the release of XP SP2).  It is becoming more common for even images to be blocked nowadays too, as they can be used as tools for (advertising) tracking which emails have been received okay.
