Animated gif in email

With outlook, I'm trying to add an animated gif to my email that will play automatically.

I have HTML set but when I insert the pisture from file, the image does not animate - just the first frame show with no animation.

What am I doing wrong?

Get the file to animate in another program, then copy, then paste into Outlook.

Dont worry about that once you send it the receiver provided he has got HTMl on will see it as animated

I just tried it.  I found some animated gifs on the internet ( Internet Ex ).  The file wasn't animated in IE but I right click, select copy, then go to Outlook then paste ( not insert ) in the body of the email.  It works.  I think the key is paste not insert

to sajuks reply......You can see if it animates for the reciveri by sending to to your self first to see the out come.

Insert >Picture >From File (any gif ) also works.
I think that since the gif wasnt in an animated state the user might have got confused.
