A very happy, safe and peaceful Christmas and New Year to all.

I can insert an animated Gif into Outlook Express, no problem.
When I insert that same animated Gif a second time elsewhere in the message it displays both quite happily animated.

The problem and question -
Then when I click "send" one of the two Gifs is replaced with a very small square with a little red cross in it. The message then goes with just the one animated Gif.

Does anyone know how I can overcome this???

Also could you include the animated Gifs as often as you want in the same message and get them all sent??

Thanks for any help.

As a quick and dirty fix, copy pic.gif and call the copy pic02.gif or similar. They will be seen as different pics.

Might be a security feature. Go to tools / options / security.

Untick Do not allow attachments.

And the one under it, block images.
