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.

How could i send pictures to an another email address?


  • Begin the attachment process by opening a new e-mail message in the standard manner. Then point your mouse at the paperclip image on your toolbar. (This image is highlighted in orange on the illustration to the right.) Click on the paperclip.
  • Next, you will be greeted by the Attachments Dialog Box. Select Browse. Then navigate to the file you want to attach.
  • In this case we have chosen to attach the file "eMailMan.png". After making your selection, click on Open
  • The Attachments Dialog Box appears again, this time with the path to your desired file specified next to the "Browse" button. Next, you want to use this path to place a copy of your file into the e-mail. To do this click Attach.
  • You may have to wait for a period as long as a few minutes, depending on the speed of your connection and the size of the attached file. Do not do any other operations while the file is attaching. After the wait is over, the name of the attached file appears in the white space at the bottom of the Dialog Box. That completes the process. Click on Close and return to and send your e-mail. Remember, it is good practice both to provide a subject for your e-mail and also to include a message telling the recipient that a file is attached.

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.

While downloading a ''this attachment may contain an application'' message appears. When the document is opened an invitation to sign up for ''iWork'' or ''Mail'' appears. The attachment will not display....


Hi,
If you aren't sure the source for this message, please dont open, since it might be a phishing/trojan/virus that could attack your computer.

and if you are sure that it is from trusted source, just confirm with him/her once again about the attachment because the message seems like some hacking trojan.

Thanks.
