How to Attach a Song to an Email

Email providers typically have an option for users to attach a file, including an audio file. There might be limits to the size of the audio file, but a song of standard length, such as three to four minutes, should be able to be attached. Sending an audio file to someone through email is a quick and easy way to share a song with a friend, family member or other acquaintance. While the procedure will vary based on what email provider you use, the steps are typically very similar.

Address the email, typing in the email address of the recipient in the “To:” box.

Find the “attach” button, which is typically located near the top of the email. It might be a button that says “Attach” or an icon, such as a paper clip. You might then have to click a “Browse” button or you’ll automatically be sent to find the file location.

Find the song you want to attach. Click the file name and then click “Open.” The file will now be uploaded to your email. This might take a few minutes. Be patient and wait until it is done attaching before proceeding. Once it is done attaching, you can continue composing the email or click the appropriate "send" button to send the email.
