Can you embed voice in an eMail and have it autostart?

Randy Bartow June 17, 2010

I want to embed a voice file into my mass eMail sent to clients and have the voice automatically start when the HTML is open. I do not want the recipient to have an attachment or to click on anything to start.

    I haven't tested it, but this may work. It will only work if the receivers view the email in HTML. Just use this code: The src should point to a mp3 file that is hosting on a website so

    Actually, what you are looking for is a .swf (Flash) program that you can embed into the email that play's a file automatically. I know there are some around, but I haven't found one. Try googling embed flash music or swf embed mp3 - something like that.

      Something tells me that antivirus programs will block those.

        They probably will, but I have a feeling it could be done. You just have to play around with things and do a bit of testing.
