Video pictures do not move in Outlook, they do in Hotmail.

Not open for further replies.



I received an email from a friend and the pictures in the body of the letter were suposed to be animated, but did not move. I forwarded this same email to my Hotmail account and everything worked fine. How can I turn my Office 2007 Outlook on so that it shows the anamation?

Animated GIFs were disabled in Outlook for security reasons. (and because they're sort of annoying, but that's just my personal opinion)

If you want to see the animations you'll want to open the message in your browser (should be a link to do that right at the top of the message in Outlook)
