For some reason when I send an audio file as an attachment it doesn't send the file, but rather sends it embedded within the player. How do I change the attachment parameters so that I can send the actual file.
What do you mean "embedded with the player"? A file can't be sent embedded in a player that is not also being sent. Your file only displayed in a player. You are free to save it to any accessible folder. You may keep it and play it at your leisure in any compatible player.
