Designing animated gif for email newsletter

Hi, I recently received an email from Hermes that had this animated gif image inside:


Which design software could be used to produce a gif like this?

It doesn't appear to be too complex. Flash could handle it.

Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro can do that.  It is a sequence of 8 separate images.  GIF89 format is made to do that as well as single images.
GIMP is free, and it's relatively easy to make animated gifs using it. Easiest way is to put all the pictures for the animation in layers (each frame would be a separate layer) in the order you want them to play from bottom up, and then save the file as an animated gif (Save As - File Type gif - Save as Animation). You can also create them in Photoshop, but it's a bit more complicated in my opinion.
