    No - and - yes.

    No - from directly within the native Mail app you can't attach mp3 files - in fact you can't attach any type of file from *within* the Mail app.

    However, using a third-party app, GoodReader, you can attach any file to an email and it's then sent using the native Mail app - so it's sent from your default account and the Contacts list can be used to enter the recipient's name.

    Here are some details of GoodReader.....



    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac.

    There is another way. If you have a Dropbox account and the app on your iPad. Download the song to Dropbox from your computer. Open Dropbox on your iPad, navigate to the file. In the right hand upper corner is an arrow. You can email the mp3 from there or scroll down the drop list ,copy it and attach it to your email in the email program.

    A work around I know, and I wish apple would make it easier, but I love my iPad and how it syncs with everything .
