How do I embed music in PP show & email in less than 10 MB?

I would like to send a email of Power Point show with embedded background
music to my family & friends.
My show is about 4.5 MB the mp3 music is 3.6 MB
PP presentation will embed only wav files
If I convert the mp3 to wav file, the size of it is 28.8 MB

Is there a way to do it & stay below 10 MB so I'll be able to send it as an
email?

Please help me, I've been trying to do it for the past 3 weeks.

Unfortunately the .wav format is one of the largest file sizes... You can
try to minimize the size by lowering the quality when you convert it (11,025
Hz, 8 Bit, Mono), but even then the file size will be larger than the more
compressed .mp3 format.

One other option, though it has plenty of pitfalls as well, is to convert
your audio to a Flash (.swf) file. Flash uses .mp3 to encode, so the files
size will stay small, and a Flash file can be embedded into a presentation.
But the viewing computer needs to have the Flash plugin installed (most do)
and PowerPoint cannot interpret much of the file, such as when to start -
rewind - or stop. Cannot be part of an animation timeline and cannot play
across multimple slides...

Try creating a new folder then save your presentation and mp3 file into that
folder.
Reestablish you link to the MP3 file.
Right click on the folder, then Send to > Compressed (ZIP) folder
Attached this to your email

Another way is to create an executable file out of your PPT (automatically
keeps the linked MP3 in a single contained file. If you have PowerPoint 2002
or 2003 you can do this. Instructions are at www.indezine.com. This too,
results in a larger file size, but you may be able to stay under your 10 MB
limit. You'll need to Compress (ZIP) the executable, since most email
servers will not allow executable files.
