    animations in mails

    How do i place an animation in an e-mail so that the recipient of that mail has access to that clip by clicking on an image in the mail to start running it? If thats not viable, then how do i place a URL link on an image to run the animation?

    You can place multimedia file in an email either as part of the email mesage or just referenced.
    I do prefer the second option as you can just place the proper HTML code refering to the multimedia file placed somewhere on the web i.e.
    <img src="http://www.yourdomain.com/image/imagename.jpg">

    The same goes for mp3 or video file. Just place the proer HTML code in yiour email message. As long as the message sent is in HTML format it will work just fine.

    Thanks for the feedback, the obstacle for me here is creating small popup window containing the flash movie, that is launched from a link (url) in an outlook mail. The popup has to be small and i'm not managing to do that.

    playing multimedia files at e-mails

    absolutely incorrect;

    Due to the attempts for disabling, or at least for discouraging the abuse of active-X controls of operating systems, media files such as flash, avi/divx or mpeg like 3rd party-software-dependant codecs, besides your mp3 files may NOT be RUN automatically only by including their correct MIME types into the message httpd headers.

    In conclusion, that is to say, no elements other than GIF/JPEG/PNG images can be embedded, but be attached to your ongoing e-mail. You can, of course, create a media-embedded HTML code, but the e-mail client recieving that code, such as Outlook do NOT treat that code as an embedded file that leads some other application running for it as if it was a natural part of the e-mail message; thus, it does not run/play your stuff.

    sad but true..

    What I did
    Through a link inviting the people to open a new window and/or get to a new place (url) is what I do in my personally-famous e-Postal Cards work, intended to be an XHTML & CSS based next-gen. messaging system. Just follow the yellow arrow to get the flash content if you open up the sample link.

    Be sure that I did try hell of a lot different ways and many things - I suffered; just like I am trying many ways to STOP and CONTROL the caching and storing abilities of my browser. Anyway, should anyone comes upto any interesting point let me or this forum, or say Dave etc. know about it.
