Can HTML emails contain movies and flash?

No, movies or flash files should be linked from the email rather than embedded inside the email content. There are a couple of reasons for this.
  1. The email is more likely to be seen as SPAM if it includes movie or flash files
  2. Most email clients DO NOT support the functionality and some devices don't even support Flash (e.g. iPhone)

    **UPDATE** - with the introduction of HTML 5 it is possible to create videos that load only a small portion of the file. These can potentially be added to your email campaign but we advise that a lot of testing must be done before delivering it to your customers. If you would like more information on this please contact us by emailing
