Is there anyway I can attach an animated GIF to email so that it plays? Right now it only shows 1 frame.

Thank you

I sure hope not... The potential for abuse ans misuse far outweighs the value you might get in a very few appropriate situations. – Zoredache Dec 12 '09 at 6:18
plays where? this is dependent on the client – Aleksandar Ivanisevic Dec 12 '09 at 9:23

Send it as an attachment, or embed it as a link.

Depending upon your (and their) email client, it may or may not appear animated on the recipient's end, but at least the image will be sent to the recipient(s).
