    Sending email with flash elements

    Does anyone know if you can send an html email with flash bits embedded. Is there a way to do this?

    Cheers

    Its not a good idea as many email clients cant show flash content , and if they can, you would not know if that option is enabled on their machine.

    saying that though, most people do have flash installed, and if it is based around an HTML email you can always have an alternative image?

    The email client is a totally different story. Why not try and send a html mail with flash embedded to yourself and see. ( Im on Mac IE 5.0 can not see Flash content in Outlook Express ).

    This may be of some interest though.

    There are some threads about this on the forum but the search does not work at the moment. But you might find the other threads later.
