Hi everyone,

I've seen today an email message with a funny animated imprint (sender's name, phone number, address etc...)

I've been wondering how is this made?
Can you help me how to do this?

Thanks a lot in advance!

I won't offer any suggestions related to how to do this, but I will offer this for your consideration:

What you think your emails are going to look like is not necessarily what the receiver will see.

The formatting of received emails is ultimately controlled by the email client (application) on the receiver’s end. Some clients will strip off all images, some will change them to attachments, and some might even block the entire email if it thinks the animated image might be a harmful script.

Even the preferences set by the user can control the way emails look when opened. Some users might allow HTML and images to work automatically, some want all text with the option to activate HTML and images on a note by note basis.

I'm not saying that you should never use animated images and fancy fonts; I'm just saying that you really don’t know what the end result will be.

As an example, I often get emails that appear to have an attachment. When I open the attachment it is sometimes nothing more than a “virtual business card” that the sender has used a signature. It probably looked real nice at the bottom his email when he sent it, but my email client considers it an attachment and removes it from the body of the note.

OK, I do realise that it may look totally different on both sides of the wire.
I don't want do do anything extravagant - e.g. my signature consists of 3 lines (name, address_1, address_2) so I would like to have simple animation like first lineenterd from the left side second line from the right side and the last one from the left again.
Just like this.

So, I if its not a problem could someone help me doing this?

Thanks a lot!

I think he means like a powerpoint slide where the text will zoom in from the left.

As an aside, I have no idea how to accomplish this

Not only don't I know how to accomplish it, I don't think it's a good idea as I mentioned in Response 1.

If you don't know what your email will look like in every mail client that might receive it, then you don't know what your email will look like in every mail client that might receive it.

I, for one, wouldn't want to send out an email and not know what it was going to look like at the other end. Maybe bold not being bold or blue not being blue is acceptable, but an animation possibly coming across as pages and pages of hex code would look pretty unprofessional to me.

Besides, I don't need my emails filled up with distracting items that add nothing to the content of the message.
