A word of caution about email attachments. Is it a virus?
Do not open the attachment without first determining that it is safe to open it. Make sure it is an attachment that you expected to receive from a trusted source. Take a few precautionary steps to make sure that the attachment will not launch a "payload" virus or worm.

  1. Does the attachment icon look like an executable (program) file even though the file name indicates it's an image? If the attachment does appear to be an executable program, do NOT click on it. Doing so may launch a program that contains a virus.
  2. Look at the name of the attachment by right clicking on the attachment and selecting Properties. The three letters to the right of the period indicate what type of file it is: filename.xxx. Files that end with ".exe", ".ini", ".bat", ".pif". ".vbs" are a few extensions of executable files that can launch dangerous programs, although they are, of course, sometimes legitimate.
If the attachment is suspicious, delete the message immediately. See Viruses for more information.
Unable to send or receive an attachment Large email attachments may cause the mail download to 'hang' or cause the message to get 'stuck' in the Outbox and result in an undeliverable message. A virus such as Happy99 may also prohibit you from sending email attachments. (See MSKB Q221486). A 200K attachment can take a long time to download on a computer that does not meet the Minimum System Requirements. If you are trying to receive a large attachment and you are operating a low-end or older computer system, make sure you do not have other applications open or running at the same time you are downloading your email. If you or the recipient is protected by a �firewall� or using an Exchange server configured to block attachments, sending and receiving attachments may be problematic. To make the file pass through intact, you can generally change the file extension from .xxx to .xx_ (use an underscore as the final character) and provide instructions to the email recipient for renaming the file back to it's original extension after it is saved locally. Cannot open or view an attachment The most common cause for this problem is a security setting in Outlook Express. Check under the Tools -> Options menu, and click on the Security tab. There is a check box that reads Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus. Uncheck that box and try to re-open the message. You should be able to view the attachement. File format issues An email attachment you receive may not be in a format that you are able to view if you do not have a program installed on your computer that can be associated with the attachment's file extension. For example, a file with an .eml should open with Outlook Express on a default system. A file with a .doc extension can be opened with Microsoft Word. Any .htm ot .html attachment would open Internet Explorer or another browser such as Netscape. If you do not have a program installed on your computer that is associated with the file type, you will be prompted to Open with ?. Note that file formats supported by the Macintosh Operating System may not be supported by PC Operating Systems. Determining what program is associated with a file type To determine what program is associated with a file extension, refer to TechFileFormat or Whatis.com for a list of file extensions and their associated programs. Unable to open .eml files If you are not able to open an .eml file, refer to Q312355: Unable to Open EML File Attachments in Outlook Express. Note that this may sometimes be caused by installing/uninstalling a program such as Incredimail. Compressed files If the file extension is ".zip" then you need a compression program like "Winzip" to open it (Note: Windows XP has a built-in compression utility). If the file extension is ".hqx" or ".bin" then you need a compression program like "StuffIt" to open it. This program comes in both Mac and Windows versions. Common image file types and associated programs An attachment that ends in .jpg is a jpeg compressed image. One ending in .gif is a graphic interchange format image. Most graphics programs will open these file types. images may also be sent in .tif format. The recommended TIF viewer is Imaging for Windows. This software is installed with all Windows operating systems. If you do not have it installed on your machine you can reinstall it from your system CD.
  1. Double-click My Computer.
    • Windows 2000/ME: Select Tools | Folder Options.
    • WinNT: Select View | Options.
    • Windows 98: Select View | Folder Options.
  2. Select File Types.
  3. Under Registered File Types, select TIF extension.
  4. Under Details, click Change.
  5. Locate Imaging for Windows and click Open.
    • Note: If you cannot find the program, reinstall Imaging for Windows from the system CD..
  6. Click OK.
  7. Then restart your browser and see if you are able to view the images.
Microsoft viewers If you receive a file attachment for an Microsoft Office product, such a file with the extension of .doc (MS Word) or .pps (Power Point) but do not have Microsoft Office installed on your computer, download and install the appropriate Microsoft viewer to open and view the attachment. See Tools on the Web for a list of Microsoft viewers that can be downloaded/installed. Direct links to viewers for the more common Microsoft products are: MS Word | MS Excel | MS Visio | MS PowerPoint

Norton is horrible for making files disappear because it thinks they are a virus and does not ask for permissions to perform deletions. I might ask if you also use msn and have downloaded their one clean (or whatever it is called) to send files... it suddenly makes files disappear on my machine... and i have no other antivirus program installed.

Try first to disable the norton security software that you have because that can filter the email attachment , so we can also check if that is really causing the problem...

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.

Which email client are you using ie: outlook express, MS Outlook, Thunderbird ?
Most email clients have a check box in tools or options that prevents attachments from opening or displaying automatically as they may be a potential virus. To have attachments work, you have to un-check the setting that prevents attachments.

You send them as attachments to your email. Just pick "attachments" and you will find a dialog box where you can pick the documents you want to send. You can send 5 or 6 at a time, just keep picking the documents. Hope this helps.

How to open email attachments


When you are in your inbox, click on the email you want to read. When the email is open and you have an attachment you want to open, go to the top of the text box and look for the little paper clip for attachments. Click on the paper clip and wait a couple of seconds. There will be a green box that will appear and it will say (down load attachment). Click on this box and then another box will say save or download. If you want to view only, then click download. If you want to save to your computer, click save and select a destination file.
