What you need to do instead is copy the GIF's link, and this can be done in a number of ways.
On a GIF website, you can usually copy the link through a prompt beside the animation itself, and if you've found the GIF on a different site, you can simply right click and select "copy image address".
2. Insert the GIF into your email
Open your email account and open a new message as you would usually do.
Select the "Insert Photo" option when composing a new email, this is done by clicking the image at the bottom which is shaped like a square with a mountain in it.
In this section you will be given several options, click the "web address" option and then paste the image address into the bar labelled "Paste an image URL here", the image will then appear in the bar.
Click "Insert" and the GIF will now appear in your email.
You can also scale and mov your GIF inside your message by click on it once and then holding the corners of the image to change it to your desired size.
