Question about Yahoo Mail

Download of attachments

Yesterday I was not able to download attachments from my Yahoo mail. Went to my work email from the same computer and was able to download both attachments. One was sent by me (phone photo), the other was an attachment sent from church. Please advise. Thanks, Paul

    For the past 6 days, I have not been able to open any attachments in my email. I couldn't open pictures that were sent to me when I clicked on the smaller ones in the email. I received an invoice as a .pdf attachment, and couldn't open it. I downloaded a newer version of Acrobat Reader, and I lowered my security in my antivirus. I read the suggestion given to the person who had a problem like this, but I don't know how to do what was suggested. Please be very specific, as I am not fluent in computer-speak. Thank you. couleemama@yahoo.com

    For about 2-3 weeks now my att/yahoo account will not open any email attachments but if I forward those same emails to my hotmail acct every single email attachments open with no problems. What gives?

  • diverlee2 Nov 11, 2008

    Same problem for me in opening attachments but no problem forwarding to a different email account. Not a solution, but when I deactivate Trend Micro Internet Security the problem with Yahoo goes away.

    YES, that was it! I have Trend Micro Virus and did as you said and now I can open up all kinds of attachments again. Thanks so much!!!

I cannot open my mail...


Just or your yahoo mail or attachments ?

Yahoo Mail is an Internet-based email service that you can check from anywhere in the world where there is Internet access.

If you or someone else have already set up a Yahoo Mail account, you can open your Yahoo mailbox.
The process just takes a moment.

Open your Web browser and type "mail.yahoo.com" (without the quotes) in the browser's address bar, then press "Enter."

Type your Yahoo ID. It is the same as the front half of your email address.
For example, if your email address is "jbob@yahoo.com" enter "jbob" (without the quotes.)

Click the box labeled "Password" and type your Yahoo ID password.
Click the "Sign In" button.

Click "Inbox" to open your Yahoo mailbox.

Yahoo Email When It Won't Open Attachments

Yahoo Mail is a popular webmail service that allows people to create their own email username and have it hosted by the Yahoo network.

In addition to providing fast and reliable email, Yahoo Mail also allows you to send and receive large attachments.

If you use Yahoo Mail, and are having issues opening attachments, there are several easy troubleshooting steps you can try to get your Yahoo Mail attachments.

Sign out of Yahoo and clear your cache.
Since Yahoo! needs to access your cache to keep you logged in and to communicate with your computer when downloading attachments, a full cache can prevent Yahoo Mail from opening attachments correctly.

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Go to your browser's "Tools" or "Internet Options" menu and then select the "Delete Temporary Internet files" command to delete your cache.


Reload the page. lf you have had Yahoo Mail open for a long time, the page may have gone idle, and you may not be able to access your attachment.
Press the "Reload" (F5) button and then log back in to your account.

Ensure that the attachment is not corrupt.
If the sender did not finish uploading before they hit "Send" or there was an error during the upload, the file may be corrupted. Ask the sender to re-attach the file and send it again.

Check the file format.
Some formats are proprietary and will not open unless specific programs are installed on your computer.

For instance, if you are sent an AAC file, you will not be able to open it unless iTunes is installed on your computer.
