If they listed the web address in the e-mail, try typing the address in the address bar or the search bar of a search engine. If you have any other questions or have already tried this, let me know.

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.

Considerations

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 simply want to stop receiving unsolicited emails from Amazon. Cannot identify where on this reply site I can effect this. Searching this site using 'Unsubcribe to emails' has not led me to a...


Identifying Amazon E-mailFrom time to time, you might receive e-mails that look like they come from Amazon.com, but they are, in fact, falsified. Often these e-mails direct you to a Web site that looks similar to the Amazon.com Web site, where you might be asked to provide account information such as your e-mail address and password combination. Unfortunately, these false Web sites can steal your sensitive information; later, this information may be used to commit fraud. Some phishing messages contain potential viruses or malware that can detect passwords or sensitive data. We recommend that you install an anti-virus program and keep it updated at all times.
Below are some key points to look for in order to identify these e-mails:
1. Know what Amazon.com won't ask for
Amazon.com will never ask you for the following information in an e-mail communication:

  • Your social security number or tax identification number
  • Your credit card number, PIN number, or credit card security code (including "updates" to any of the above)
  • ***********'s maiden name
  • Your Amazon.com password

2. Requests to verify or confirm your account information
Amazon.com will not ask you to verify or confirm your Amazon.com account information by clicking on a link from an e-mail.
3. Attachments on suspicious e-mails
Amazon.com does not send order confirmations or other unsolicited requests that require you to open attachments, nor do we permit our merchants to do so. We recommend that you do not open any e-mail attachments from suspicious or unknown sources. If you receive a suspicious e-mail allegedly sent from Amazon.com that contains an attachment, we recommend you forward the e-mail to stop-spoofing@amazon.com (as an attachment if possible) without opening it. Delete the mail after you send it. If you opened an attachment in the e-mail, we recommend running anti-virus or anti-malware software.
4. Grammatical or typographical errors
Be on the lookout for poor grammar or typographical errors. Some phishing e-mails are translated from other languages or are sent without being proofread, and as a result, contain bad grammar or typographical errors.
5. Check the return address
Is the e-mail from Amazon.com? While phishers often send forged e-mail to make it look like it came from Amazon.com, you can sometimes determine whether or not it's authentic by checking the return address. If the "from" line of the e-mail looks like "amazon-security@hotmail.com" or "amazon-fraud@msn.com," or contains the name of another Internet service provider, you can be sure it is a fraudulent e-mail.
6. Check the Web site address
Genuine Amazon.com web sites are always hosted on the "amazon.com" domain--"http://www.amazon.com/. . . " (or "https://www.amazon.com/. . ."). Sometimes the link included in spoofed e-mails looks like a genuine Amazon.com address. You can check where it actually points to by hovering your mouse over the link--the actual Web site where it points to will be shown in the status bar at the bottom of your browser window or as a pop-up.
We never use a web address such as "http://security-amazon.com/. . ." or an IP address (string of numbers) followed by directories such as "http://123.456.789.123/amazon.com/. . . ."
Alternately, sometimes the spoofed e-mail is set up such that if you click anywhere on the text you are taken to the fraudulent Web site. Amazon.com will never send an e-mail that does this. If you accidentally click on such an e-mail and go to a spoofed Web site, do not enter any information and just close that browser window.
7. If an e-mail looks suspicious, go directly to the Amazon.com Web site
When in doubt, do not click the link included in an e-mail. Just go directly to www.amazon.com and click "Your Account" in the top right menu to view recent purchases, or review your account information. If you cannot access your account, or if you see anything suspicious, let us know right away.
8. Do not "unsubscribe"
Never follow any instructions contained in a forged e-mail that claim to provide a method for "unsubscribing." Many spammers use these "unsubscribe" processes to create a list of valid, working e-mail addresses.
9. Protect your account information
If you did click through from a spoofed or suspicious e-mail and you entered your Amazon.com account information you should immediately update your Amazon.com password. You can do this through Your Account by choosing the option to "Change your name, e-mail address, or password" found under Account Settings.
Even if someone has been able to look at your account, they are still not able to see your full credit card information. However, orders can be sent from your account using your credit card so please contact us immediately if you notice any orders that you do not recognize.
However, if you did submit your credit card number to the site linked to from the forged e-mail message, we advise that you take steps to protect your information. You may wish to contact your credit card company, for example, to notify them of this matter. Finally, you should delete that credit card from your Amazon.com account to prevent anyone from improperly regaining access to your account. To do so, click "Edit or delete a credit card" under Payment Settings in Your Account.
How To Report Phishing E-mails or Request Account Assistance
If you have received an e-mail you know is a forgery, or if you think you have been a victim of a phishing attack and you are concerned about your Amazon.com account, please let us know right away:

How to not open suspicious email


First of all install a virus scanning program that also scans incoming
e-mails.
Second, if your service provider allows you to view your e-mails via the WEB browser then use this to view your mail, so you can delete junk mail and suspicious mail, you may also be able to add the junk e-mail addresses to the SPAM filter to reduce the number of unwanted incoming junk mail.
Third when you open you e-mail viewer and if you do not recognize the sender DELETE THEM WITHOUT OPENING THEM, it could be junk mail or a virus embedded e-mail with a file attachment (these files can be PDFs, GIFs, Word docs, Excel docs etc). These e-mails could have also have a hyperlink to a WEB site and if you click on this link you could download virus programs onto your computer.

you need to clear the browser's cache
you did not specify your browser so i will assume this tips will involve your browser.
to do that

How do I clear cache using Netscape? Question : Answer : help_a.gif Cache files, or Temporary Internet Files in Microsoft Windows 95 or higher, are copies of files sent to your web browser and stored on your computer so that when you access a web site (such as PayPal) at a later date, it will load much faster. However, sometimes cache and temporary Internet files can cause problems in viewing your current information on the PayPal web site.

To set the size of the memory cache or clear it in Windows or Unix, follow these steps:

  1. From the Edit menu, click Preferences.
  2. Open the Advanced category on the left hand side of the screen and click on Cache. You should see an option to clear your disk and memory cache. It is recommended you clear both caches.
  3. Click Clear Memory Cache.

You may also need to locate the folder on your hard drive named Cookies or Magic Cookies and delete all the cookies that are stored there.

To improve your computer's performance accessing the web, and specifically while visiting PayPal, regularly clear your cache file.

To clear the cache with AOL on a Apple Macintosh, follow these steps:
