    Viewing GIF files in Outlook 2010

    I received a gif file in Outlook 2010 and could not view the animation until I opened it in a web browser. Is there a setting in Outlook that will allow the gif file to be animated without viewing in a browser?

    I could not find anything when I was looking at the settings.



    Thanks,

    Mike

    You are right. There is no solution to have the animation displayed in a preview.
