    You need to enable the ActiveX inside the Outlook...  I don't recall exactly but it is one of the preference item you have to select...

    My advice; don't use Flash in any email.  Every couple of years or so the idea is brought up by clients of mine.  I run tests.  It never works.

    Here are the results of a series of tests run by a respected email marketing house that also says "Don't do it".

    Because of security issues, email is becoming more and more limited in the things it will do.  And Outlook 2007 completely goes backwards and severely limits a lot of tags.  Stick to the basics, and test all emails with Outlook 2007 and Gmail at a minimum to get an idea of whether or not it will work on other email readers.

    I hope this helps.
