gif images in Outlook 2007 & 2010

By garethbrussow ·
Some of our users are using Outlook 2007 SP2 and Outlook 2010. If we receive e-mails that have gif images embedded in the e-mails, we notice that the images don't move. Is there a way to get them display correctly? The same images display correctly in Outlook 2003.

In a Nutshell - NO

Animated gifs are not supported by the primitive Word 2007 rendering engine that MS decided to use in Outlook 2007. Quite a few other HTML features also do not work. MS has moved e-mail back at least 5 years. Theory is that they didn't trust the IE7 engine to provide an acceptable level of security.

Or the OP here

Could always move back to Office 2003 which is the preferred Office Package with the majority of my users.

That would cure more than this single issue with Offices 2007 & 2010 and there is no Ribbon.
