    Is there a way to get QT to play audio in email attachments?
    Im on 10.6.4, and if I import the attachment to itunes I can hear the audio, but the default is quicktime and its not working.

    Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    I am on QT version 10.0(114)

    QT might not support the enclosed audio codec which iT does. Otherwise, there shouldn't be any other reason. Mail just calls QT to play the file. You probably get the same result when saving the attachement to disk and open it with QT instead of iT.

    Salvation? Try to figure out what the missing codec is and install it for QT - if available.
