    Yes my friend. MP3's, MP4's and various documents can be sent and opened as attachments in emails on Windows Phone. Tap on the attachment once to download, then tap on it again to open it.

    Depends...are they being sent to you or are you wanting to send them. From the email app, the only thing you can attach to an email is a picture/video file. To send other types of files, it has to be supported in the ap that is associated with that file type using the "share" function.

    As for receiving files, as long as you have an app that will open the file you receive, the attachment is supported.

    I'd already answered this question in my first reply. You can open MP3's as an email attachment

    Since opening email attachments provides the whole picture of emailing mp3s...

    Can they be emailed from the phone? I assume that is what he is asking since I covered other items above in my reply.

    Amazingly and surprisingly enough, yes. I just tried it. You have to go to the song in the Music app, and long press on song, then share it.

    Be mindful when sharing pictures and videos as email attachments. Windows phone will compress the files thus lowering their quality. It's best to upload them to Skydrive and share the link to them so the recipient can enjoy the original quality.

    You can't save MP3's that have been sent as email attachments. Just another OS limitation.

    I found a workaround for finding an mp3 or whatever file from an email on your phone! Just go to hotmail or whatever mail u use through the browser! You will be able to download the attachment from there and find it on the phone in the,right application( music for mp3s). Pleasure is mine;)
