Very true, sorry to be so 'black-and-white'. The question sounded a little like a marketing gimmick, and being that is my field of expertise, I have strong opinions about stuff like that.Lyk2no said:Jones, At the least, give me the benefit of the doubt that I can judge whether the same Email is appropriate for a close friend or the office of a local Bishop.
Is it a definite no no to send an Email, with a classical music background, to a friend who is a musician in an orchestra?
It would be interesting to know what others think of this.
I now see that my problem started when I updated Windows Media 6 to WM11.cwwozniak There appears to be such an option in OE6 ...
Create a new message then ...
Format -> Rich Text (HTML)
Format -> Background -> Sound ...
That opens a dialog box where you can browse to find the desired audio file or a midi file.
You also have the option play the file once or having it repeat.
I suspect that this will only work if the recipient's e-mail software supports the playing of background sound files.
I just checked my version of WMP. It is still at version 9. A little bit of searching on Google and the MS site seems to suggest that various security issues when using WMP with Outlook and Outlook Express. Maybe trying to embed audio files in an e-mail is not that good of an idea after all.Lyk2no said:I now see that my problem started when I updated Windows Media 6 to WM11.
WM11 will not allow embedding music.
Thanks for your insight and help.
