I have received an e.mail with a song incorporated.
How can I extract the song or find it if it goes into a temporary folder?

Does it not show as a Attachment? 'cos if it does, you should be able to right-click and save as ...

No it is incorporated and not an attachment.

So which program actually plays the music, assuming you can hear the music - if it is WMP, you might be able to rip it.

The music just plays when the e-mail is highlighted . I use OE and no music player is shown as running in Task Manager.

Hmm, have you tried Googling for the song/music - it might be down-loadable.

Usually it is either an attachment or a link to a web page.

You could use Audacity to record the song as it is being played click here

You could also use Nero wave editor if you have it installed.

No, it's neither - it is a background to the email just like a picture or colour.

This link might work for you Quiet Life

I should perhaps expand on what I said. It is of course an attachment - but not in the usual sense inasmuch as it's a hidden attachment.

Sea Urchin Many thanks. That link solved it. The answer was to show all e-mails in Plain Text and then the sound shows as an attachment.
