go to control panel>sounds & audio devices>sounds tab. Here you can associates different sounds to general windows commands.....

Sorry – should have made myself clearer – so that can send an email with a “wav” file and it automatically plays when it opened by the recipient!

yeh you wouln'dt want to do it with a .wav file cause it'd be quite large even for a few seconds of sound.....if you convert it to mp3 that'd help a lot in that regard......getting it to play automatically......yep well it'd have to be 'embedded' into a html email.....
