How to embed music into an email (HTML)

Hey everyone,

K.. i have to do this mailout for a client that i did design work for.. how, and what's the best way to add music to the mailout?

Basically, they want music playing when the recepient opens the email. It's a dj set.

Thanks for the help!!

yeah someone answer this question, because I'd like to know too

which goes to say that I personally don't have a clue. Sorry dude.

But cool idea.

do they know the customer base they are reaching?
if i got an email that played music, i'd probably close it instantly without reading it.

that being said, you could embed the music in a flash file and then embed the flash file into the email.

1/ create the HTML page
2/ <embed src="your music.mp3" autostart="true">
3/ copy and paste the source of the html page into an html email

thanks for this.. now, will this stream the audio, or download it first, then play it? It would suck if it downloaded first cause it's a dj set, and by the time it finishes d'ling, the person is finished reading the email.

If that's the case, how do i make it stream instead of download?

Thanks!!!
