RE: How does one listen to mp3 files

If you are not looking at your e-mail using HTML, then you will not hear
background music, and also, many lists remove such things from messages sent
through them.  HTH.

Hi Hank,
I just tried sending myself an email with a sound as the background. It
played until I sent the email. When I received the email it played the
sound. When I checked my sent folder the sound played. I have no idea why
yours did not play. Try sending yourself something and see what happens.
 
Rich

Hello 
 
I did these steps you mention and it appeared that I was successful in
placing a desired song in the email because when I completed these steps and
was placed back in the body of the message where I could add more text or
not the desired song started playing.  So with the desired song playhing I
sent the email.
 
But when I went into my sent folder and opened up this email I had just sent
with the desired song I wanted to play in the background, no song started
playhing, I just saw the text of the email that I had typed, but no song
began to play.  What gives?
 
Have I done it correctly to place a desired song in a email to be played
automatically when opened or is there something I'm not doing correctly?  If
you can plese help me out with this, I would much appreciate it.
 
 
Happy surfing 
 
Hank Merchant

To put music on your email do the following:
 
open a new message and press alt o for the format menu.
 
Make sure rich text and html is check
 
Then do alt o again to go to the format menu again and press b for
background then s for sound or arrow up and down till you get the background
then sound.
 
Then tab once to browse then look for the sound you want
 
Then tab to ok and you should have your sound there.

Francis,
 
Here's how to set things up so that the file will play.  Once you do this,
you won't have to do it again.  So don't be scared away by these
instructions.
 
First, find Windows Media Player on your system.  It is probably already
there.  Let's assume it is.  Look for it under Start
Menu/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment.  Just arrow down until you come to
it. (You might wish to create either a hotkey or a desktop icon for this
application for your convenience later, so you don't have to hunt for it
again like that, but that is another topic).
 
Now launch Windows Media Player (often referred to on a mailing list as WMP,
for short).  
 
Now you have to set it up so that it will always play an .mp3 file on your
hard drive when you click on the filename.  To do that, go to the Tools menu
by pressing alt T.  Use your up arrow to come to the Options item (it's
actually near the bottom of the menu, but since you can cycle around and
around in this menu list, going upward will bring you to it quickly).  Now
open the submenu by pressing right arrow or Enter.
 
You will now be in a sequence of "tabs," each of which is a menu related to
one specific area of operation.  Use Control Tab to move to the Media types
tab.
 
Now if you want WMP to play everything audio you need played, from steaming
audio online to an .mp3 file, just tab to the Select All button and hit
Enter.  If you want to choose only some audio formats and not others (no
reason at this point in your experience, I'm guessing), someone else can
probably help you do that.  But I suggest pressing Enter on Select All.
Now, I haven't done this for a while, so I forget if you have to then tab to
OK and press Enter to make the settings permanent and make the menu close.
I think so.  Be careful to do this if it's the right thing.  You'll know if
you press tab after selecting all, and come to an OK button.
 
Okay.  Now you're set up.  Now, find the .mp3 file on your computer.  Use My
Computer or Windows Explorer to go to wherever it is.  For instance, c:\my
music\Christmas Carol.mp3.  With that filename selected (so that Jaws is
speaking it when you land on it), press Enter.
 
and now, WMP launches, and the file begins to play.
 
There are more adjustments you can make, but this is the basic idea.
 
I hope that helps.

Hello,
 
you need a programme that will play .MP3 files, something like Microsoft
windows media Player should do the job.
You need to save the attachment then load it in to Microsoft media player.
