    There is one small utility called WMUtil which allow users to compact and repair the Windows Mail database in Windows Vista. It also allows the user to manually compact the database to remove any wasted space from it. Try to add gif images after repairing the database of windows mail.

    Make sure that you are creating or composing mail in HTML and not in plain text format. Also if you are dragging and dropping the image directly in the mail, it won't get attach. So you need to attach each gif image file separately. I hope it helps.
