  1. Animated e-mail

    I received an e-mail with a text message and an animated GIF file in the body along with the text.

    I can create a html file with text and an animated picture on it, but not just in the body of an e-mail.

    Any ideas how that's done?

    I'm not sure if this is what you want but I think you need to enable HTML, then create the message body using HTML tags.

    The images in that email are probably linked remotely unless they were attachments.

    I have found that my free Juno e-mail has an "insert picture" icon and will do the job but Yahoo and Hotmail do not have that option. At least that I can find.

    Thanks for the help.

    I use Incredimail, which has animated letter backgrounds, and much more. It works on the same principles as Outlook Express. I have never had any reason to complain about it.:grinthumb
