Select “New Email” from the ribbon.
Put the address on.
Click the “Insert” tab, and click “Pictures” on the ribbon.
If the animated GIF is online, then click on “Online Pictures.
Select the file, and then click “Insert.”
It will insert the file into your email message.

But no working

however, i have found some related discussions online. please let me know if the hints from below link work for you.

Outlook hasn't supported display of animated GIFs by default for a number of versions now.  If you embed the image then Outlook will only display the first frame of the series.  You can change the settings per image for it to be viewed in a browser instead but your recipient will also need to have these settings.  There are some technical security issues with allowing GIFs to play by default within the email application.
