Opening the GIFs in Preview in Snow Leopard shows the frames. In Preview in Mavericks the frames don't show. My conclusion: Mavericks must be the culprit. Is there anything that can be done to to open them Mavericks Preview?
I'm not so sure that the format is corrupted or that I received them as static images. If that were so, why would they animate under Snow Leopard? Is this another thing that Mavericks left out? I've had all kinds of issues since 'upgrading' to Mavericks - after doing a clean install. "Apple givith and Apple taketh away."
That's the problem. They don't animate in QuickLook or Safari nor do they animate when sent on. The sender checked out the site where they all originated and the originals ARE animating - both the one's that animated and the ones that didn't in the email I received.
BTW, I find that they will animate on my MBP w/ Snow Leopard but not on my iMac w/ Mavericks.
I found this online.

I'm not asking to build GIFs, just to animate these existing GIFs.
If I want to forward the email, how can I be sure the GIFs will animate for the recipient?

I get an error message from the Comcast server: Not Our Customer. However, I can go online and access my Comcast email account using the same username and password.
I spent three hours on Saturday with three different Comcast technicians and another 1 1/2 hours today with another internet 'specialist'. Every item they have...
