Can I include flash based banners in emails I send out?

Are there any known pros/cons such as getting flagged as spam by hotmail/gmail/yahoo etc? Now working with any popular client programs? etc.

Flash runs as a browser plug in, so not likely. (Might still be possible, just doubtful.) You may be able to send it as an attachment and it might play if they have the Flash player installed.

And if the email client allows it.
