Add Background Sound to an Email Message in IncrediMail

Spice Up Your Email with Sound Effects and Music

In IncrediMail, adding background sound to a message is pretty easy. The email client comes with built-in sounds you can add to an email message. Or, you can add your own Wav and MIDI sound files to use in your email.

Music sets the tone, stirs emotions, and appeals to reason. Like sports events, shopping sprees, TV shows and festivities of every kind, your emails can gain from harmonious background music. IncrediMail 2.5 comes with character sounds, effects, MIDI songs, MIDI events, and quotes. You can get more sounds from their Gold Gallery.
