I don't believe so. Most (all?) e-mail browsers disable JavaScript.

Nice link, millenia_techy. BGSOUND works in MS Outlook :-)

do you have to embed the sound file as a link to an online form or can you attach the files in the email somehow?

Both are possible I think. To use a sound located somewhere online, using the full URL (http://www.domain.tld/mysound.wav) in the SRC attribute of the BGSOUND tag should work.

Else, if you're worried that the user could be offline when reading the mail and if you want to make sure there's a sound at that moment too, then following should work as well :
- use something like <bgsound src="cid:attached_sound"> in the HTML body of the mail
- attach the sound to the mail and assign it a content identifier, by adding a header line (in addition to the usual MIME-headers) like :

Content-Id: attached_sound
