It depends on the type of file. many types of files can be used to harm other people's computers. this is why viruses spread.

your email is just warning you. try zipping the file up, using winzip.

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.

Cannot receive large files


Yahoo cannot send message with more than 10MB attachment size. You need to break the file if it possible or zip the file to be less than 10MB.

I have my yahoo account set up on Outlook 2010. I can receive mail but after a day or two it starts asking for my password. If I go to yahoo mail log out and login it starts working in Outlook again. Is...


2 reasons as far as i know

1. If you recieve an email with attachment ( more than 3-4 MB ) Outlook may not download as the file size is too big
2. Any mail with attachment and has Virus/spyware linked to it, Outlook will disconnect.

Work around solution is, If you are using Antivirus which has Email filtering, Disable this option from the Antivirus program or Turn it off for time being till you download all the mails from Yahoo to Outlook and turn it on

Another reason is, at times yahoo login ( website ) ask you for verification code, ( this could be for several reasons like, someone trying to access your email account with wrong password, it will prompt for verification code )
If your login page is asking for verification code, and you are trying to download the mails from yahoo to outlook, you will get a username/password screen on Outlook, this is when you login to yahoo webpage and logout.

I want to attach & send pictures in my yahoo


There are two main theme in yahoomail, one is "Classic" and the other is "All New Mail"
To attach file/photo from classic, Click new or compose and look carefully just below the "subject" bar, there you'll see a button "Attach File", to attach file, click on the button, browse the file and follow the instructions.
Similar procedures for the "All New Mail", the difference is only the "attach file" button location, after you've opened the compose or new, look at the top columns, you'll see, "Send" "Attach" etc,, just above the "To" box. I hope this helps. Good luck, Thanks for using FixYa.

There are red blocks where images or pictures are suppose to be on all yahoo sites


hi,

Outlook Express comes with a default setting that blocks email attachments from being opened or downloaded. This can be overcome by clicking on Tools>Options>Security, and unchecking "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus." You also need to have "Block images and other external content in HTML email" unchecked.
