    Re: Sound MIME Type/Subtype(s) * (XPP / OE6)

    If you look at the MIME types in the registry, are they different for these different types of audio files?

    Maybe, to make your messages less annoying, you should just attach the files. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Sound MIME Type/Subtype(s) * (XPP / OE6)

    OE6 permits .mid, .snd, .au, .aif, .wma, .mp3 and .wav sound files to be embedded as background sound files and they will play whille the mail is still on the local machine, however, .wav files are the only sound files that travel when embedded with the e-mail once sent.

    Is there a requirement or even a means for adding or modifying the MIME Type/Subtypes for sound files to have the other permitted files to embed in the e-mail?

    Hi, Jefferson ~

    Different than what for these different types of audio files??

    The MIME type keys at <UL><LI>My ComputerHKEY_CLASSES_ROOTMIMEDatabaseContent Type<LI>My ComputerHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMedia<LI>My ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftActive Setup[/list]do not appear different for other types than do for the WAV types which work as indicated previously.

    I was suspecting that this issue may have something to do with the MIME types, but searches turned up sparse info in relation to this.
