adding musid to email stationery

  Chattyone2 19:50 06 Jan 04

I am using Windows XP home and Outlook Express 6.0

I have in the past added music to my emails. I produced one today this time adding a song. I sent it to myself and it worked.
I sent to to my self at Hotmail and it worked.
I sent it to my brother and it didn't work!!

Any suggestion why it is not consistant

Did he have his speakers switched on/plugged in and the volume turned up. TR

Sorry i should have said..yes all audio equipment was on and working. This was checked by sending another email with embedding music

I really don't know the answer, thats why I asked the obvious. Hopefully someone will be along shortly. TR

Do you think it might be an anti-virus program or IE6 security thing? Presumably the music file attached to the email is seen as an "executable", and we know that in the past these have been exploited as virus carriers. As to why it plays when sent to your home system address and your Hotmail account, maybe these have been set by you (or are treated by XP as) "trusted sites" as they are of your own creation, in a way?

Have you tried the Incredimail add-on for Outlook,I have XP Home and this works perfectly for me. I send all sorts of music files with it. Click here see what you think click here
