Q. How can I attach an audio file to an email and have it start to play as soon as they open the email?

A. You can format your outbound email in one of three ways: plain text, rich text, or HTML.  With plain text or rich text, the sounds (MP3, AVI, etc.) are usually sent as file attachments.  With HTML you can imbed the sound files directly in the body of the message so that they can be played automatically when the message is opened or read.

The process to attach sound files varies based on your specific operating system and email software.  Also, the operating system and email software used by the recipient will determine whether or not the sounds will be played when the message is opened or read.

Many email programs are now blocking all file attachments by default, especially sound or photo files, due to spam and viruses that have abused these functions.  Also, sound files tend to be fairly large so it is generally best to avoid sending them via email.

An alternative is to post the sound files to a file sharing website like myspace.com and then just email a link to the sounds which the recipient can click on to listen or download as needed.  This is generally the best method as it increases the chance of your messages being delivered without being blocked by anti-virus or spam software.
