Default OE 6 background sound

I have asked questions about why OE suddenly will not allow me to embed
larger files into new messages in several newsgroups. The suggestions have
all been good but the bottom line is that I still cannot embed larger wavs,
short wavs 125kbs or smaller but not bigger.
*************
I have been embedding large wavs in OE for years. What do you suggest to
repair this problem in OE. Below are some of the suggestions that have been
made and that I have tried, but still no solution.

this is a simple e-mail with a large size wav file (618kb) embedded and a
few images.
I use the known attributes of OE to embed both sound and image files.
For sound: OE Main Menu - Format | Sound| .....
For images: Embed | Image (or something like that ... 4th option from the
left in main - menu) (using a Dutch OE version here)
(I'm quite positive this is the same method you use for embedding your
files)

If this wav plays for you, then we know we have to look into your OE
settings if there is anything prohibiting you from doing the same

Just some thoughts. While these may not sound like the solution, it's
surprising what they can achieve.

In IE: ToolsInternet Options. Delete the TIFs and Offline Content. In
OE: Compact all your folders.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders
are open. Then: FileWork Offline (or double click Working Online in
the Status Bar).
FileFolderCompact all folders. Don't touch anything until the
compacting is completed.

Run a Defrag and try. If still no joy, it is possible that you have a
damaged identity in OE. Create a new one. FileIdentitiesAdd New
Identity and test it. If that works you can import your messages from
the old ID and delete it.

Hi RRR, no that isn't necessary. This is during the process of
creating an
email with embedded sound. It's not during the uploading of the
email.
File attachments for most pop3 email servers is about 10mbs. That's
plenty
for me. Thanks for the suggestions.

Leeray,
Have you check with your ISP/Mail service and see if they have a
policy on
the size of a single message, or files that are attached to them.
Some
services have put limits on the size of messages sent through their
service
to stop file sharing of media files.

Default OE 6 background sound

Have you posted to an OE6-specific newsgroup about the issue?

news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...tlooke xpress

The OE stationery groups have migrated to a microsoft hosted private news
server some months ago.

The private server can be accessed using the following settings in a new
news account:

Server: privatenews.microsoft.com
Account Name: privatenews\stationery
Password: stationery

The only reason it's on a private server is that Microsoft does not allow
posting of messages larger than 100 KB to pubic newsgroups. Since many
stationeries are often much larger, since they include multiple images and
sound files, the use of a private newsgroups was set up to allow them to
continue with their creations. Broadband is certainly an asset since many
of the postings now exceed 400-500 KB routinely making them difficult for
telco users to download.

Yes I have and here they are. Everyone is doin there best. This must be a
tough nut to crack. I have used OE for years, been able to embed huge wav
files. Now it's suddenly limiting me to under 200kbs. Been searching MS
knowlege base and 3 newsgroups as well as Googling.

Here are the other's suggetions of which I have tried them all.

Thanks Bruce, I just joined there and posted my question. I also tried like
hell to find the answer in Microsoft's Support for OE. Can't find anything
at Google either. There must be something a person can do to increase the
size of the sound embedded into OE. I'm open to any links or suggestions
from anyone who reads this.

Are they wav or midi files? AFAIK, those are the only ones you can

Hi Bruce,

I has nothing to do with sending the email. And yes, that box is checked. I
get the message whether I try to save the email to my Draft folder or send
it. Point is, it will play when I embed it but it does not embed into the
email. Someone said something about Cid nr?

I have been embedding large wavs in OE for years. What do you suggest to
repair this problem in OE. Below are some of the suggestions that have
been made and that I have tried, but still no solution.

this is a simple e-mail with a large size wav file (618kb) embedded and
a few images.
I use the known attributes of OE to embed both sound and image files.
For sound: OE Main Menu - Format | Sound| .....
For images: Embed | Image (or something like that ... 4th option from
the left in main - menu) (using a Dutch OE version here)
(I'm quite positive this is the same method you use for embedding your
files)

If this wav plays for you, then we know we have to look into your OE
settings if there is anything prohibiting you from doing the same

In IE: ToolsInternet Options. Delete the TIFs and Offline Content. In
OE: Compact all your folders.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders
are open. Then: FileWork Offline (or double click Working Online in
the Status Bar).
FileFolderCompact all folders. Don't touch anything until the
compacting is completed.

Run a Defrag and try. If still no joy, it is possible that you have a
damaged identity in OE. Create a new one. FileIdentitiesAdd New
Identity and test it. If that works you can import your messages from
the old ID and delete it.

Hi RRR, no that isn't necessary. This is during the process of

File attachments for most pop3 email servers is about 10mbs. That's

Default OE 6 background sound

Well, I got to thinking I wanted to install the SP2 patch on a clean system
and decided to do a full recovery of my Presario. Now everything is back
into working order and OE is working fine.

Thanks everyone for your help and happy surfing!

Yes I have and here they are. Everyone is doin there best. This must be a
tough nut to crack. I have used OE for years, been able to embed huge wav
files. Now it's suddenly limiting me to under 200kbs. Been searching MS
knowlege base and 3 newsgroups as well as Googling.

Here are the other's suggetions of which I have tried them all.

Thanks Bruce, I just joined there and posted my question. I also tried like
hell to find the answer in Microsoft's Support for OE. Can't find anything
at Google either. There must be something a person can do to increase the
size of the sound embedded into OE. I'm open to any links or suggestions
from anyone who reads this.

Are they wav or midi files? AFAIK, those are the only ones you can

Hi Bruce,

I has nothing to do with sending the email. And yes, that box is checked. I
get the message whether I try to save the email to my Draft folder or send
it. Point is, it will play when I embed it but it does not embed into the

Have you posted to an OE6-specific newsgroup about the issue?

news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...tlooke xpress

The OE stationery groups have migrated to a microsoft hosted private news
server some months ago.

The private server can be accessed using the following settings in a new
news account:

Server: privatenews.microsoft.com
Account Name: privatenews\stationery
Password: stationery

The only reason it's on a private server is that Microsoft does not allow
posting of messages larger than 100 KB to pubic newsgroups. Since many
stationeries are often much larger, since they include multiple images and
sound files, the use of a private newsgroups was set up to allow them to
continue with their creations. Broadband is certainly an asset since many
of the postings now exceed 400-500 KB routinely making them difficult for
telco users to download.
