Step 4

Locate the MP3 file on your computer. Double-click on the MP3 file and wait for it to be uploaded to your email as an attachment.

Step 5

Fill in the address, subject and message fields of the email if you haven't done so already and click "Send" to email your MP3.


It is courteous to ask a person if they want to receive an MP3 via email before you send it. MP3 files can be large, and if the receiver's email inbox is already full, your file may push the inbox over its size limit. If your recipient does not want to receive an MP3 in her inbox, you can deliver the file via FTP.


If your MP3 files is 5MB to 10MB or larger, it might be rejected by the recipient's email for being too large a file to download. Most email providers have size limits on the files they will receive.
