    Host the banner online and send an HTML email that refers to the animation. This used to work but due to Outlook security upgrades, it may not anymore. If not, convert to animated gif.

    If all else fails, drop back 10 and punt. Then post your question in a help forum, instead of the CL.

    Moved from the chat only Coffee Lounge to a more appropriate forum.

    If you've noticed, most e-mail campaigns are done up in very archaic, table based layouts. You will be better off linking to your flash banner version from within a basic, standard fare version that's to be mailed out.

    Flash in e-mail is a typical no-no.
