Question about Yahoo Mail

Attachments not downloading

Ever since I updated to the more recent yahoo mail page my attachments havn't been downloading to my computer. I still get the security pop up that says that there is no virus detected. Next to that it has a button to push that is supposed to download the attachment. Whenever I do this, it directs me to another screen that says Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. It then gives me the option to diagnose the problem. I went through every option that it gave me, and it still didn't fix the problem. I thought that it may be something with my Trend Micro security program, but nothing in there helps either. Please if you have any advise help me. I am an online student and I need this ASAP. Thank you.

SIncerely
Sean

    I am already in the classic mail setting and it doesn't matter whether I am at work (filters) or at home (no filters). I click on the "download file" button and nothing happens. This has been going on for several weeks now. I cannot open the attachments in my e-mails.

Some of my attachments will open and others do not. I get checking for virus's and then it doesn't do anything. Other attachments will open. It doesn't seem to matter what form they are sent.

At the top, Somewhere in Yahoo mail, There should be a link to go back to Classic View, if it was working before the upgrade, then you may just need to go back to the classic version.

I cannot open my mail...


Just or your yahoo mail or attachments ?

Yahoo Mail is an Internet-based email service that you can check from anywhere in the world where there is Internet access.

If you or someone else have already set up a Yahoo Mail account, you can open your Yahoo mailbox.
The process just takes a moment.

Open your Web browser and type "mail.yahoo.com" (without the quotes) in the browser's address bar, then press "Enter."

Type your Yahoo ID. It is the same as the front half of your email address.
For example, if your email address is "jbob@yahoo.com" enter "jbob" (without the quotes.)

Click the box labeled "Password" and type your Yahoo ID password.
Click the "Sign In" button.

Click "Inbox" to open your Yahoo mailbox.

Yahoo Email When It Won't Open Attachments

Yahoo Mail is a popular webmail service that allows people to create their own email username and have it hosted by the Yahoo network.

In addition to providing fast and reliable email, Yahoo Mail also allows you to send and receive large attachments.

If you use Yahoo Mail, and are having issues opening attachments, there are several easy troubleshooting steps you can try to get your Yahoo Mail attachments.

Sign out of Yahoo and clear your cache.
Since Yahoo! needs to access your cache to keep you logged in and to communicate with your computer when downloading attachments, a full cache can prevent Yahoo Mail from opening attachments correctly.

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Go to your browser's "Tools" or "Internet Options" menu and then select the "Delete Temporary Internet files" command to delete your cache.


Reload the page. lf you have had Yahoo Mail open for a long time, the page may have gone idle, and you may not be able to access your attachment.
Press the "Reload" (F5) button and then log back in to your account.

Ensure that the attachment is not corrupt.
If the sender did not finish uploading before they hit "Send" or there was an error during the upload, the file may be corrupted. Ask the sender to re-attach the file and send it again.

Check the file format.
Some formats are proprietary and will not open unless specific programs are installed on your computer.

For instance, if you are sent an AAC file, you will not be able to open it unless iTunes is installed on your computer.

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.

Hi,

This is a known issue with new version of Yahoo Mail.

As a workaround to this problem, you can switch to Yahoo Mail Classic (Older version Yahoo) by clicking the Options link in the upper right corner between Help and Mobile on your Yahoo Mail page, then click the Switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic link.

A dialog box might appear asking for feedback. If it does, click Switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic.

For more details, click on this link:

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.
