How do you e-mail a sound file?

<< < (3/3)

Steerpike:
Even 5 mins in .WAV format is a huge file from an e-mail point of view. PKZIP, RAR etc. don't get a good compression ratio at all when used on audio data.

If it HAS to be a non-lossy compression, it will still be a big file - no matter which codec you choose, so you'll just have to accept a long send/receive time.

I hate anyone sending me e-mail attachments over about 100kB. It's far more 'socially correct' to put large files on a web site or ftp server and email people the URL. (unless they specifically request a particular large file)
