I want to send an email with audio and want audio to start when email is opened. I need a step by step guide from start to finish in creating sound file to work with Outlook 2003. This will not be used in corporate environment.

Thank you for your response, I followed your instructions and In tool bar --> format -> background I do not see choice for Sound. I see only Picture and Color. Am I missing something?? I am using Outlook 2003.

Okay! I did manage to add sound to outgoing email in Outlook express 6 and it works fine, however, when I opened the email at my work, the email did not play the sound nor on other recipients PC, on my home PC it did works fine. How do I make it work?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
