I'm part of communications team in my organisation and should be able to send a lot of animated pics on emails . I just googled and realized that Outlook 2007 doesn't support sending Gif files on emails. Can you help me with a solution ? Viewers should be able to open the mail and see the animated file on the mail directly

    You can insert the animated GIF file into your mail body content itself. so that will do animation when the recipient views the mail. Still you want to send a attachment please convert this file into flash file and they can able open it and see the animation in internet explorer itself.

    Hi, VamshiKorde.

    Microsoft disabled support for animated gifs in Outlook 2007.  There is no workaround.
