    Background Sound within a message (Outlook 2003 SP2)

    Hello there!

    A Friend of mine asked me if it's possible to place a sound file within a message. The way it should work is this: you open the mail (or even just within the preview window if possible) and the music starts playing. By searching the other threads I found out that it is possible, but not how.
    This is where the Masters of the Lounge come into play. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I know you guys can help me. Thx!!
    Philipp

    From Add sound to an e-mail message:
    <hr>The ActiveX controls used to add sounds to e-mail messages were disabled in the latest Windows update, Windows XP SP2, because they pose a security risk. There is no supported workaround to enable this functionality in any version of Microsoft Office. You can still attach sound files to e-mail messages, but they will not play automatically. The following instructions will work only on a computer that does not have Windows XP SP2 installed. We recommend that you upgrade immediately to Windows XP SP2.<hr>
    So I fear you'll have to forget this idea.
