    [F8] Possible to Embed .swf in an email (it's an eCard)

    I designed a nice eCard for a friend's Salon and really really wanted to embed it in an email so that the end user would recieve the card upon opening the message. I've done a lot of reading and it seems that embedding an .swf has become a no no for security reasons though in the past people have developed work arounds for this problem. The last few work arounds I've explored have noted that this will not work in XP w SP3 or in IE8 or whatever other caveats that imply it will not be possible.

    Since none of the info I've come across is current -- I thought I'd ask here to see what the current definitive answer on this topic is.

    Should it be no, it's not possible, I was thinking that I would just embed a web page that looks exactly like the eCard and use the card as a link to the actual card hosted on my server. Problem is I don't know how to make the still image (I took a screen shot of the card playing) and make it into a link.

    Thanks in advance for your insight !!

    Wow, not one response or suggestion. Maybe this should have gotten bumped to another area in the forums.

    Well either way I finally caved and did what I originally thought I would have to -- create a dummy page with the link to the real card and sent it out that way.

    In the end it was another excellent learning experience, and I'm certain I'll have other issues pop up that maybe you all will be able to help with.

    Happy Holidays !!
