I am new to Yahoo and I cannot seem to attach anything. It just sits there saying that it needs time. I never had this problem with Comcast. What do I need to do t resolve it?


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.

seems your provider does not like your attachments.
Gmail. are you using GMAIL web mail on line.
it has limits (all do) on sizes
and types of attachments allowed

if your running XP the system can be infected, and may add ******* attachments with out your knowledge
no OS stated. by you, on this G62223
it came new with Windows 7

actions to take
send mail with no attachments
then look in the sent box, and see that it is devoid of attachments.
then send a small attachment.
say a 500kb picture or smaller
does that work ?
if no try a small text file. that must work.
or call Google (GMAIL) and ask them ?
its their mail server. so... their call. on rules.
do not send EXE files or any other coded files, scripts. etc.
only send photos small and text.
and you can luck out.

Remove virus from account


1. Open Yahoo Mail. Use your Yahoo! user ID and password to sign in to Yahoo Mail. Open the email message suspected of containing a virus.
2. Find attachments. The attached files are in the header section above the body of the email. The names of the attachments will appear as blue, active hyperlinks, taking on the actual saved file name given by the sender.
3.Initiate automatic virus scanning and cleaning. Look for another link labeled "Scan and Download Attachment" and click it. If this link does not show, you may have to click directly on the attachment's file name. Look for the alert "Scanning attachment for viruses." The alert may appear for less than a second, dependent upon the size of the file; if you miss the brief message it is not important.
4. Wait and read results. After the virus scan completes, if no virus is detected, you will be given the go-ahead to download the attachment. If a virus is detected, Yahoo Mail will try to automatically clean the attachment, and then present the option to download.
Hopefully, it may help to protect your Email account.

I cannot open any attachments, how do I fix this?


A Yahoo posting suggests that you disable scanning attachments in your anti virus software.If that fails go back to classic mail Hope this helps. or else http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-33677-can-t-download-attachments-on-my-yahoo-email
I had the same problem, which had to do with my anti-virus (Trend Micro). I had to go into Virus Controls; then Protection Against Viruses; click on Settings and uncheck the box that said "Threats in Web mail attachments". Remember, Yahoo uses Norton to download attachments so you can't have two virus protections "running" at the same time.
i think this will help u thanks vote for me

Can't Open Attachments In Outlook Express


If you cannot open attachments while using the Outlook Express e-mail client, your security settings may be too high. When you try to open attachments, you may see the following message: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail.”

To check your e-mail security settings:

1. Open Outlook Express.
2. Click on Tools in the menu, and scroll down to Options.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Make sure “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus” is UNCHECKED.
5. Click on the Apply button. Click on OK.

You should now be able to open attachments.

Attachments to E-mail won't come up


Turn Off Attachment Blocking in Outlook Express 6.1 SP1 Introduction Many viruses are transmitted through files attached to e-mail messages. For this reason, blocking of attachments is now a standard feature of many e-mail programs, including Outlook Express 6.1 SP1. Attachment blocking has been available in Outlook Express for some time, but it is now turned on by default.
When using Outlook Express to read your e-mail, you may notice a yellow message stating: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: filename(s).” Please note that the attachment is still included in the message, you simply cannot access it because of a security restriction that can be turned off. These instructions explain how to turn off this restriction.
Procedure
  1. In Outlook Express, select the Tools menu, and click Options.
  2. Select the Security tab, clear the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box, and click OK.

    f4b8581.gif
  3. You should now have access to all attachments in your e-mail messages. Remember, you should never open an attachment unless you are certain it does not contain a virus. It is recommended that you save the file first, and then open it from the saved location.
