Can anyone tell me if there is a workaround in Outlook 2007 & 2010 for using animated gifs like you can with background images? For example I use this code to put a background stripped image in for Outlook 2007 & 2010:

<!--[if gte mso 9]>
<
v:background xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" fill="t">
   <
v:fill type="fill" src="http://www.3dartwork.co.uk/images/bg-holder_151515.gif" />
</
v:background>
<!
[endif]--> 

Is there a similar workaround to get animated gifs to work?

Cheers

David

David,

At this time, we are not aware of a work-a-round for getting animated gifs to work in Outlook 2007/2010.

If you or anyone else comes up with a fix, don’t hesitate to share it with us!

Miki
