How to delete photos and attachments in e-mail side bar

I don't know if this is a problem or not but I noticed over a thousand pics and attachments in e-mail side bar folsers labeled Pictures and Attachments, but I don't see anyway to delete them.
They are nothing I will use again so why keep them on computer?
Thanks for any help and explanation you can give.

    "...Go to your My Photos or My Attachments folder, actually it's not a folder but a link.Click the Subject of the photo or attachment, Then hit the Delete button..."

    I tried to follow your solution in IE7, it doesnt work. There's no Delete button in My Photos or My Attachments, unless you want to delete the entire mail in question.

    Please help with another solution, if exists. These photos are many, and duplicated.

    I'll check this site again, if fixed.

Actually there's a way to delete those attachment items as well as the photos, but it is not the usual way of deleting messages in an inbox that we can check them all and delete all at once. This is what you have to do, Go to your My Photos or My Attachments folder, actually it's not a folder but a link.Click the Subject of the photo or attachment, Then hit the Delete button.

Do the same with the rest, and now it's easier 'cause after you've deleted the first one, the rest will follow one by one, therefore what you have to do is keep on clicking the delete button till all of it is gone.

There you go, you can delete those unnecessary and irritating attachments you have. I hope I have solved your problem....Thank you,a for rate this solution if it does solved your problem will be much appreciated...enjoy....

How do oy delete pictures in your email account? I have tried everything people has answered on this and it still does not work


Hello,
I'm going to assume that you are speaking of pics you have received in an email.
If so, you can simply delete the mail. If you want to keep the mail and not the pic(s) you can:
1. Open the mail and click on the "forward" option.
2. When the new mail comes up ready to send, you will have the option to delete the attachment (photo). In Yahoo Mail Classic, it will be beside the thumbnail of the of the pic(s)(just below the subject line), and will have the word "remove" beside it. Click "Remove" It will ask you if you are sure you wish to delete the attachment, click "OK".
3. Address the mail to yourself (you can also change the subject line to read what you wish).
4. Click send.
5. When the new mail arrives without the pic(s) (you may have to refresh the page if it doesn't show up in a moment or two...right click on the open page and click Refresh" or "Reload"), you can delete the old mail and the pic(s).
In newer versions of Yahoo Mail the option tp remove an attachment may be at the bottom or elsewhere on the page.
If this doesn't solve your problem, you "may" be able to comment on this solution and if so I should see it. In your comment give more accurate information regarding the photo (i.e. where it resides, is it in your mailbox, photo sharing in chat, or elsewhere on your pc. Tell how you received the photo and whether or not you viewed it, downloaded it, etc.If you can't comment then repost with more detailed information please.
Good luck!
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a rating of 4 and maybe a "thanks" It will help me as well. Thank you.
