Not really.

HTML email is stuck in the dark ages, unfortunately, so you can't take advantage of the same capabilities that are found in a web browser (which in5 relies on).

You can put an animated GIF into an email.

For that, I would

  1. Create a movie file (or image sequence)
  2. Open it in Photoshop
  3. Using the Timeline panel convert to frame animation
  4. Export as an animated GIF
