Yahoo Mail is a Web-based email program that is provided for free by Yahoo.
Anyone can sign up for the service to send and receive emails from friends and family.
Yahoo places restrictions on the size and type of attachments that can be sent and received when using Yahoo Mail.
Any email attachment that contains a virus, is too large or doesn't meet the file type requirements may be blocked by Yahoo.
Virus Scanner

Yahoo Mail scans each attachment that arrives or departs from your inbox with Norton AntiVirus.
If the virus scanning software detects a virus within an attachment, Yahoo will warn you and attempt to clean it.
Yahoo does not promise that every virus will be detected or cleaned by the Norton AntiVirus software.
Only accept attachments from people you know and trust.
Don't attempt to open blocked attachments if it is known to harbor a virus.
Large Attachments
Attachments exceeding 25 megabytes will not attach to an email.
Multiple attachments that exceed 25 megabytes will also be blocked by Yahoo Mail.
Once your attachments reach 25 megabytes, you will no longer be able to add any additional attachments.
If you have many attachments to send that exceed 25 megabytes, send several emails to send all of the attachments.
If you are receiving attachments, let the sender know that you are unable to receive any attachments larger than 25 megabytes.
Slow Connection Speed
It may appear that Yahoo is blocking your attachments if you have a slow dial-up connection because they may never appear to load.
Yahoo isn't actually blocking the attachment, the connection is just very slow.
A 25 megabyte file could take over an hour to download with a 56K dial-up connection.
Your computer may go to sleep or the download may be even slower if you surf the Web while your files upload.
File Type
Only certain file types can be sent using Yahoo Mail.
Yahoo Mail allows you to add audio files, images, HTML files, word processing documents, spreadsheets and many other types of files as attachments.
Some documents are not supported, but you can send unsupported file types by renaming them, including them in a RAR or ZIP archive, creating a Word document with the file, sending the file through Yahoo Messenger or you can upload the file elsewhere and send a link to the file via email.

Home page changed, to mywebsearch by google, why?


You may have inadvertently downloaded this attached to something that you DID want to download. It is mostly considered an irritant and a virus infection but probably will not do you any hard but can be very frustrating trying to remove all its parts and pieces. It can be removed through the Control Panel. However, please note that the little black jpeg still may linger on your toolbar area and, if it does, go through the Tools, Add Ons and locate the MyWebsearch and ask for it to be deleted or disabled.

Hope this works for you. If you need further clarification, please just post a request. Thanks.

I receive email with attachment. But anti virus from yahoo mail detect a virus in that attachment. So i can't download that attachment. I still want to download that attachment. What the solution? thank...


If you manage to download this file you will most certainly infect you PC with a Trojan Horse, Worm, or Spyware, these virusus remain on your computer copying valuable information and remembering keystrokes and send them back to the creator or host. It is therefore important that you forget about this attachment and somehow find it from a more reliable source. If it is from someone you know I have written a tip on some really good Free AntiVirus programs, (it can be found here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6790239-virus_infection_best_free_anti_virus), that you can download and install, then run a full scan on the PC with the file. Once the PC is clean the files that are infected can be healed. The file can then be re-attached and sent virus free.
