How do I get music file from hotmail (on ipad) to my ipad's music folder?

Question says it all. Someone emailed me a song (m4a) that I need to put into the music folder in iPad. It is an attachment and I can play it directly from the email message, but how do I move that file elsewhere, eg to the Music folder?

Im using Hotmail (Outlook).

Honestly I think I am sorry for buying an iPhone 5 and an iPad. Why cant things be simple!

thanks

At the top right of the screen can you see a folder icon with an arrow pointing out of it? Tap that and select the App that you want to play the music.

Within the email? OK I'll try it later. Ideally Id like to put it into the library but we'll see.

thanks

Failing that, forward the email attachment to your computer then load the music file into iTunes and upload to your iPad from there.
