Can I use a flash movie in my emails?
We recommend you do not use FLASH / SWF objects in your emails as most email clients will filter out your email. If you do want to use animation, use an animated gif. If you want to use interactive animation, we recommend you use an image as a placeholder, with a link to a Webpage containing your Flash object. See how to include images in your HTML messages.
