Hi All,
I have a client who is hell bent on mailing out a Flash 4 or 5 file embedded in an HTML e-mail. Personally I think this is ... how you say... Stupid?! I think people should get a choice of what they see rather than having it rammed through their e-mail software. But anyway... I have found this works on a PC using Outlook Express but not on a Mac using the same software.

What I would like to do is gather some information on how this works on other system setups (Eudora, Netscape etc.) or indeed if it does at all. Then I can go back to my client and alert them to the pro's and con's of doing this and hopefully pursuade them to try an alternate delivery method.

Does anyone have any info about Flash in HTML e-mails that might help me?

Many thanks,
Rupert

I can tell you it doesn't work in Netscape 4.75 Messenger.
Thank God!

Cheers

Well, I went back to my client and let them know that it doesn't work in Netscape as you said, and when my client heard this and remembered that his boss used Netscape - there was this sudden (very mysterious) change of heart. Beautiful.

Thanks Again.
Rupert
