Have you ever found a song that you liked so much, you just had to share it with someone? Well, wouldn't it be cool to do that by placing it as the background music to an email you send out? While your friends read your email, they will hear the song.
If you use Outlook Express, you can add background music to your e-mails with ease. Go ahead and create a new e-mail like you normally would and then go to the Format menu. Next, choose Background and then Sound. A new box will pop up and you can either type in the name of the file or you can browse for it. Just hit the Browse button to navigate to where you have the file saved.
When you find it, select it and then you can choose if you want the song played continuously or if you just want it played a certain amount of times. Just choose the correct number for your preferences. When you've made all your decisions, hit OK and then send the email as usual.
Note: People who use screen reading technology sometimes find the automatic playing of music very annoying because it drowns out their speech while the song plays. It may be best to ask before sending music in this way. You could always attach the song to the message, giving your friends the option of clicking the file to play it.
