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

Thank you, Tee

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

send it as an attachment.. or embed it as a link.

Depending upon your email client, it might or might not appear animated on the receiving end, but at least the image by itself will remain intact.
