using the Interactive layout you create Flash (SWF) not HTML, so I moved your question to the Web layout forum. Using the web layout you can create HTML. As far as I know SWF can't be embedded in email.
Regarding coding HTMl emails, please google for "Common HTML Email Coding Mistakes", it will find several articles telling you what is best practise for HTML emails and where obstacles are.
Does that help?
