I need to embed a countdown clock in an email that I'm sending in Outlook. I know how to do this on a webpage, but is it also possible to do in an email? Would this require javascript/flash, and if so, can you use those technologies in an email?

I think I know the answer to this, but just in case there's something I haven't thought of...

Yes, you can create an HTML based email that uses javascript.  The clock will work the same as it would on a webpage.  The only consideration is that the user receiving the email has to be able to view the email as HTML (rather than plain text) and that they have javascript enabled in emails (some email clients may provide the ability to disable it for security reasons, but you'll have this same issue with any web browser).
