Can not read email


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.

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.

if this fails to fix the problem
If you accidentally delete an important email, you may want to reset your Yahoo! email account to a previous time to recover it.

This is possible by filing a Yahoo! email restoration request.
Unfortunately, Yahoo! is unlikely to be able to reset an email account to a time period more than 24 hours in the past, although it may be possible in some cases.

Visit the Yahoo! email recovery site (see Below).
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/basics/basics-01.html

Click on "Please use this form" next to the name of the Yahoo! Mail version you use (All New Yahoo! Mail or Classic).


Select the time period you want to reset your Yahoo! email account to in hours. For example, if you wanted to go back eight hours, select "8."

Type your Yahoo! username, name and email address.
If you aren't signed in, you'll need to enter your password as well.

Click on "Submit" to submit your request to Yahoo! technical support.

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

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.

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 recently switched to Yahoo but I cannot seem to attach any pictures.. hat am I doing wrong?


Share photos through the Internet the same way you would share other news - in a Yahoo! email message.
Yahoo! Mail may be your go-to choice for text emails, but the free email program also offers the ability to attach photos with your messages.
There's no additional charge to send photos with Yahoo!, though the more photos you attach, the more time it may take for your email to get to the recipient.

Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account.
Click the "New" button. If prompted, click "New Email Message."

Enter the recipient's name into the "To" field, or click the "To" link and select the name from your Contacts folder.
Enter a subject line and type a message into the body section of the email window.
Click the "Attach Files" button.
Click the "Browse" button to the right of "File 1."
Go to the first picture to include and double-click it.
This lists the file path in the "File 1" box.

Click the "Browse" button for "File 2" and repeat the process.
To attach more than five pictures, click the "Attach More Files" link.

Click the "Attach Files" button.
Depending upon your computer's speed and the files' size, it may take a few seconds to a few minutes to complete the attachment process.

Click the "Send" button to send the photos.

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.
