    need a little help if you can

    any info on how to embed a flash .swf into an email without it looking for a link or source file
    i.e when opening email flash animation plays automatically
    [even when offline maybe? ]

    thanx

    Cool try this


    try exporting the swf to exe file (pc only though) and attaching it to the email. or you could try using an HTML email (rather than just text) most email software will show it anyway.

    regards

    hey,

    hi,

    unfortunately this isnt yet possible, well not that i know of anyway, I have got a mate that has recently told me that there is a programme out there that automatically launches the exe when the mail is opened, but he hasnt sent me the link, try mailing this question on the general help board/ actionscript, im sure one of the guys could help.

    An alternative to this is simply embedding a picture in the html that is a link and then opens up the flash file on your sever? Its what alot of consultancies do with their newsletters.

    cam.
