    Sure. Attach the MP3 file.

    If you embed it in the email so it plays when it is viewed, I can hardly think of something that would be more annoying than that. I would killl someone who did that to me.

    Sending Apple Lossless files over e-mail is also generally frowned on...although I don't personally condone killing people. :)

    some mail servers limit attachment size, i've seen limits as low as 2 mb, but im sure some are even lower. *.mp3 > 2mb = no email in that case.

    Yep, just attach the music file as an attachment to the e-mail. But as nattyz has said, there could be a size limitation. :)

    Sure, but free email accounts like Yahoo and Gmail allow 10MB atachments and paid services often allow larger ones.

    Uh...

    The attachment size limitation has nothing to do with the mail program you use, it's determined by your ISP.

    To my knowledge, Mail doesn't have a built-in limitation on attachment size...I have no idea why it would. Limitations are imposed by the service providing the e-mail access (both incoming or outgoing). Mail is simply a program for reading that e-mail.

    Edit: Missed it by *that* much!
