In flash, setup your pubblish settings. Then press CTRL+F12 to show you flash in browser. It generates a HTML page with the *.swf integrated in. As you know, emails are mainly diplay by HTML.
> So, you can put the flash on a server (somewhere online) and change the path of the *.swf in the HTML page source. And use this page as the message of the mail. (problem : on online email checkers as maybe yahoomail (not on hotmail) the html mails are not display as the sender want) Did you understand right the main idea?

Reply me !

If you don't want the flash plugin to be downloaded in order to view your flash... you'll have to create a projector and send your .exe as an attachement.
This adds to file size and few people will oppen it though... at least not without an antiviral scan... ;).. this of course if it dose not get deleted (if it's unssolicited).

Nicool's way... is the good way to do it ;), anyway:wavey:
