viewing .gif animated files in Outlook 2010 emails

I have just updated from Outlook 2000 to Outlook 2010 - big jump for me..


I occasionally like to insert and view a .gif animated images in my emails.

Please can somebody tell what settings I need to change in order to get

things moving again.

Many thanks 


Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 do not support animated gif images. You can still insert them and if the recipient uses a mail application which support gif animation, they will still work.

If you receive a message which has animated gif inserted, you can open the message in a browser to display the animation.
