By attaching an iTunes song to email message, you can easily transfer a music file to another computer or device without having to worry about distance or network connections. You can send any song from your iTunes library, although if you purchased the song from the iTunes Store, you won't be able to play the song on the other end unless the recipient computer or device is registered to the same Apple account.
