Does your email client not support a threaded view when displaying messages?

You can either play the MP3's directly over the network using standard file
sharing techniques, or you can stream MP3 data from the slim server. From
Winamp open the URL:

http://slimserver:9000/stream.mp3

After you connect using Winamp you can go to the Slim web interface to
choose which songs to play.
