I have embedded a flash file in an HTML email sent by VBA via Access. It shows up in Netscape mail, but not in Outlook 2000 or Yahoo Mail.

Can you suggest what I am doing wrong ?

All I can tell you is that Flash is only readable in certain e-mail browsers. Any Flash e-mail that you have received probably only resembles Flash, but is likely a Java application. There are companies that can do this for you.

Supposedly, this issue will be less of an issue in the future, but it doesn't work now.

Thank you Syrinia for your response. The email that I received did contain a flash banner (I created it and embedded it myself in the email message) and it was readable in Netscape Messenger. I can write Java Applets myself but prefer Flash files.

I use NS Messenger and it wont display Flash files and I love it that way. Otherwise you could get all sorts of colorful spam.

Please don't email or PM me Flash questions, that's what the Forums are for!

Please don't rely on me reading my PMs either. Email me about important stuff.
