Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop

Why can't I select the download location of EVERY attachment in Yahoo Mail?

Hello:
I am new to Mac and LOVE it!  I do have a few quirks that are driving me crazy.  I use Yahoo Mail and in Internet Explorer when I attempt to download an attachment it prompts me to open or save and I can either open the file or save it to the folder of my choice.
With Safari all my downloads automatically go to my Downloads folder or another static folder that I can chose....I want to be able to select which folder to save the file in each and every time, just like IE 7.0....can I do this with Safari??
Thank you in advance for your help!

    Unfortunately, you can do this with files on the internet but not with Yahoo Mail attachments.  In Yahoo Mail using Safari if you click the attachment it automatically saves the file to the Downloads folder, or whatever folder you select in Safari Preferences....I HATE this!


    I wish I could click the attachment and then be prompted if I want to open the file or "save as" and then chose whatever folder I wanted like you can do in IE 7.0.

Safari has only the one option for file download location but you can right click the file you want to download and select the "download as" from the pop up list then it will give you an additonal option there.

I just upgade my yahoo mail, but now cannot download the attached file from my mail, unable to open the internet site, http:/my.mg4.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch, operation aborted


For this new yahoo mail interface go to the compose mail, you will see a tab for attachment (with an icon like a paper clip). When you click on it, it will bring another tab below with the word attach files. Click this also, it will bring a dialogue box for files to select from, then browse as usual.

I am using new yahoo mail and just upgraded my browser to IE 9. Everytime I tried on attaching a file, the window keeps refreshing itself instead of appearing a pop up window to choose file location


IE 9 still has it issues one of the other things I do not like about IE9 is that there is also no spell check yet. I really suggest that either use Google Chrome or Firefox browsers both are good and fast which have the spell checks as well as additions that you do control. You can find the downloads Click Here for Firefox and Click Here if you decide to choose Chrome. I have used these two since their conception, just stay away from all the add-on goodies they are attractive but can muddle up your browser speed.

Your problem will be resolved. IE9 is new and still BETA but they will not tell you this. So there are quirk's frankly that I as well have seen and not willing to use yet. Of course it is always user preference. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Access Free Yahoo! Mail with Mac OS X Mail Using POP Over MacFreePOPs

To set up access to a free Yahoo! Mail account in Mac OS X Mail:

  • Install MacFreePOPs and make sure the freepopsd service is running.
  • Select Mail ' Preferences... from the menu in Mac OS X Mail.
  • Go to the Accounts category.
  • Click + at the bottom of the Accounts list.
  • Type your name under Full Name:.
  • Enter your full Yahoo! Mail address (e.g. "example@yahoo.com") under Email Address:.
  • Type your Yahoo! Mail password under Password:.
  • Make sure Automatically set up account is not checked.
  • Click Continue.
  • Make sure POP is selected under Account Type:.
  • Enter "Yahoo! Mail" under Account Description:.
  • Enter "localhost" (without the quotation marks) under Incoming Mail Server:.
    • If you run into problems using "localhost", try "127.0.0.1".
  • Type your full Yahoo! Mail address ("example@yahoo.com", for example) under User Name:.
    • Mac OS X Mail probably has already entered your user name, and it's enough to append "@yahoo.com" to complete the address.
  • Click Continue.
  • Click Continue again, ignoring the error. We'll take care of that in a bit.
  • Make sure Password is selected under Authentication:.
  • Leave Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) unchecked.

I'm having problems with my Yahoo mail account. It takes forever to load, and sometimes it just doesn't load at all. When I can get in, I can't download attachments. Other Yahoo sites are really slow, too.


Hello there... Check your internet connection first...It should work fine.
Regarding Yahoo!mail account, I've also experienced that one so I use the Yahoo!mail classic in order to see my emails. And it worked for me everytime. Hope this helps...

Even though you want to attach a picture, instead of attaching a photo, try attaching a file instead. You can then select the photo. I think it is some sort of quirk in Yahoo. I had the same problem.
