Re: MIDI Files Don't Play in Windows Mail

Very often the volume gets set to a very low number (-9640 or somesuch). Compose a new HTML message and then go to Insert | Background | Sound. Then insert the midi. Then, prior to sending the message, go to View | Source Edit and then click on the Source tab at the bottom. Then look through the source and look for <BGSOUND volume=-9640 src="mymidi.mid"> and change the volume to zero (the maximum). See if that works then. If it does, then go to Control Panel | Sounds and find out which device is muted or has its volume control set to zero and then fix that and in the future the midi should work.

I've read and tried several solutions after Googling this problem. I
thought I'd post here. Windows Mail will either 1) not allow MIDI
files to be inserted into a new message, or 2) not allow MIDI files to
be PLAYED. I don't know which it is. If anyone can tell me why, I'd
appreciate hearing. Thanks.
