As one of the techies, I'll point out that there is an Internet standard for including things like sound files in email messages; it's called MIME. (As to what kind of sound file should be included this way, there is less agreement. A number of the PC mail programs have their own way of including files, too, but this way madness lies.) Having established that it *can* be done, should it be? I'd say that within the society of this list, there's a strong antipathy toward large messages (and audio files will be largish); for now, at least, I'd think that Natalie's offer to make such files available via ftp and/or the Web is the way to go. -------- David Harnick-Shapiro Internet: david[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Information and Computer Science UUCP: ...!{ucbvax,zardoz}!ucivax!david University of California, Irvine
