Hi Yada. :) Just an add-on.

If using Outlook (or others I suppose) you can also send it as a background music that they will hear as they are reading the email. Just select format>background>sound>and browse to where it is stored. Add it after you have written the email.

Thank you Rick and Doyce. I attempted to send it and after 15 minutes I gave up.... why does it take so long to send and is there an easier way of doing this? If I understand this right it is like sending a photo I have scanned? Sorry to be so dumb!

A lot depends on the size of the file. A .mid file will send much faster than a .wav because of the size of it. My guess is the size of the file you were sending was about 3M. If the same file were sent in a .mid format it would only be about 25K. The problems is you have to have a special program to convert them,

The other thing is the speed of the modem you are using.

There are two things you can try. I cant say that they will work, or, how it will affect a sound file.

In Outlook, go to tools>accounts>click on and highlight the mail provider for Outlook>click properties>advanced tab>increase the slide bar for server time outs and check the send box for "break apart messages larger than".

When you select to send a new message, it should be one of the options at the top.
