  • Hi,

    >>My requirement to file play automatically once user opened that email.

    I'm afraid it's not supported in Outlook. This is because in Outlook 2007 and later version, Outlook uses Word or a Word based editor to edit and display the emails. If you want to play GIF in emails, you need additional steps:

    1. Open the email message in separate window.

    2. Under Message tab, click Actions > View in Browser.

    Regards,
