    We are also experiencing this problem. First, it was my wife's Yahoo mail login. No attachments to email messages would download or open. We have good internet security and have checked all settings. My Yahoo mail worked okay, but is now having the same problem. I can log onto my work system from home and it has Outlook. I can open email messages and open attachments there. This seems like a Yahoo mail problem, but I can't tell for sure. Turning off the pop-up blocker did not help.

    I have the same problem. Get random error messages from Yahoo - error 5, error 14, error 15. Obviously Yahoo is having staffing problems and can't fix glitches - they have been bleeding money since they refused the buyout from Microsoft. My guess is they are circling the drain. We will be on some other public mail server in six months.

Can't get most of my attachments to appear

With the Web-based Yahoo! Mail service, you can attach to your email message a saved Web page or another document in HyperText Markup Language format.
When you attach an HTML file in this way, Yahoo! Mail won't display the HTML content of the attached file in the email message body.
To view the attachment, you must click the attachment tab above the email message.Yahoo! Mail and HTML
Yahoo! Mail is a Web-based service and it's fully compatible with the coding languages used to design and display Web content, including HTML and XML, Extensible Markup Language.
This means emails sent or received in Rich text or HTML format include clickable hyperlinks, graphics and other Web design elements.
However, Yahoo! handles emails with HTML attachments in a different way to email messages formatted with HTML.

About Yahoo! Mail Attachments
Like most email programs and online services, Yahoo! Mail offers an attachment feature for adding images, video clips, audio files and HTML document to email messages.
Some email programs display the content of the attached file in the email message body, but Yahoo! Mail doesn't provide this feature for any file attachment, whether it's an image, video clip or HTML document.

Viewing Yahoo! Mail Attachments When you attach an HTML document or another file to your Yahoo! Mail message, an "Attachments" button labeled with a "Paperclip" icon appears below the email address fields and above the email message body.
Clicking the "Attachments" button opens a pane containing a list of all files attached to the email. The email sender or recipient can open each attachment to view the files by clicking the file name.


When sending a Yahoo! Mail with an attachment, always explain the content of the attachment in the main body of the email message.
A brief explanation will encourage the recipient to click and open the attachment to view the HTML document.
Bear in mind that many email services automatically block HTML attachments because of the security risk of opening HTML files, which can contain viruses, phishing scams or open Web pages with inappropriate content.
If you want to share a favorite Web page with a friend or contact, include a hyperlink to the Web page rather than a saved copy as an HTML attachment.

I am using Outlook Express 6 which pops over my email from At&t Yahoo. Now when I open a picture from My Pics folder I can't email any pictures. It takes me to a Yahoo sign in screen. Frust

Your default email might need to be changed

Open up your new email type in the adress then you should see attachment depending on which email you are using select attachment then you will open up a browse window navigate to your photo/attachment where you have saved it (my pictures) most common select it you might have to wait a few seconds for it to load as an attachment then click send Hope this helps.

Cannot open attachments in Yahoo email

My best answer based on the information given is that it could be a compatibility issue with google chrome and yahoo email. Im not sure if google chrome was tested with yahoo email yet by the yahoo staff. Try opening the attachment in another browser such as firefox or internet explorer. If you can open attachments with either those browsers, then its possible that google chrome isnt fully supported yet. Youll still be able to read and send email with google chrome but you may have to you one of the two browsers that i mentioned in order to get attachments.
