Since you provided no details, a generic answer will have to
suffice: Assuming the audio is an attachment, most email
software has an option to "Save As.." any attachment(s).

Try right-clicking on the icon (if you have one).

Thanks for the quick answer.

And sorry I didn't give enough details.

The audio is not attached. Someway it is embedded into the email. When
I open the details of the email, it has the audio identified like
this:

Content-Type: audio/wav;
name="lol.wav"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-ID: <005401c51c4f$27148ee0$6400a8c0@frank75computer>

This digital code goes on and one for several pages.

Thanks again for your help.

Actually the audio IS attached, but your mail reader (which you
did not identify) is apparently not properly decoding a standard
MIME attachment...

When most of us open an email with that in it, our email application
(like MS Outlook in my case) automatically recognizes all that "random"
text as a MIME attachment and provides a link to "lol.wav" which I can
choose to play or save as I wish.

What are you using to read email? Do you get other attachments
decoded properly? If so, perhaps this particular message was
corrupted in transmission and you could have the sender try it
again?

That's MIME encoding. If you're on a Unix box using elm or pine, save
the file, then go to the shell prompt and use "munpack <filename>" and
it will extract the .wav file from the mime body.

Thanks for all your help.

I'm using Win XP SP2, Outlook Express version 6.

Most emails I get have attachments and I can open, save if I want to.

I will try some of your suggestions.

Thanks for your help.

If the audio file is "attached" you can "save as" or "detach" (it is
the same operation, but different email programs have different names
for it).

You should be aware that there are some bad guys out there cooking up
files that, on the surface, look like audio or pictures, but are
actually system damaging programs. If you were not expecting the file
to be sent from a trusted friend, be sure to investigate the origin of
the file before attempting to play it. The "expecting" is extremely
important because a friend's system could have been captured and
enlisted a zombie army that pumps out bad files attempting to enlist
all of your friend's friends. Contact your friend and ask if he or she
intended to send you that file.

Usually when I get an e-mail message like this, even if it appears to
be from somebody I know, I assume it's a virus of some sort and simply
delete it without opening it. The file name, in this case, is
particulalry suspicious.

However, Base 64 is a standard method of encoding a binary file using
alphanumeric characters that will pass through a mail system.
Apparently either the sender didn't do something right when attaching
it or your mail program isn't set up to automatically decode it
(probably a good thing).

WinZip (if you're on a Windoze PC) will decode this and save the
results as a file. You can save the message as a text file and drag it
to WinZip. If you're on a Mac, there's probably an equivalent (another
missing detail).

Copy anything from this line (Ukl...), paste it into notepad (or your
favorite text editor), save it and decode it with a Base64-decoder.

If I were you, I would send an email to the person who sent the file
and a) ask them if they really sent it; b) ask for a re-send.

If you get other attachments properly, then the message in question
is either damaged in transmission, or it is malware of some kind.
Either way I would delete it ASAP and *NOT* attempt to extract
anything from it.

Or, if the email is in HTML and playing an embedded file, right click and
select "EDIT SOURCE" and see if you can see an audio file being referenced,
although often embedded music is MIDI - so in which case look for any file
with the extension ".MID" as well.

Oh yeah - this is if you are on a PC - if you are on a Mac, I have no idea.

Good luck
