As I see it, "yahoo classic" no longer exists. (I could be wrong, but it's not immediately apparent on the web page.) If you like having more control over how email is displayed onscreen, I strongly suggest using a mail reader program, such as Outlook Express ("OE") (for Windows XP and before) or a similar program for Apple-based operating systems ("Eudora" comes to mind.)

With OE (or "Live mail" I believe is the newer version for Windows 7 and later) or for any mail reader program, you manually set the server information according to the help menus / answers / FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) of your mail service. Example: for yahoo, you would log into your yahoo mail and click on "help" and search for "Outlook Express" or for "SMTP" or "POP3" in order to learn their server settings. Then it's a (rather simple but *exact*) process of setting your reader's account settings to match what yahoo wants them to be.

WHY would you do this? Simple: control. With a reader program you can "download" your email to your system's hard drive. This means the mail comes *off* yahoo's servers and *onto* your hard drive. It is then deleted from yahoo's servers (unless you click the checkbox options for "keep" / "keep until", etc.) and is now under your control, on your hard drive, where you can do more things more easily (saving attachments, editing text, copy / paste / etc.) You can also *sort* much faster using OE -- sort by subject, +/- alphabetically, by date (descending / ascending = newest to oldest or oldest to newest) or by author (sender of the email) or even by size, attachments, priority, LOTS of options. This comes in handy when you're trying to delete *groups* of emails, like spam or newsletters.

Email readers (like OE or even Microsoft Office's "Outlook") can even be used to auto-sort incoming (POP3) emails into folders so all the jokes you get from Aunt Mary all end up in a "humor" folder or sent straight to File 13 (the trash / deleted folder.) Mail readers can also auto-save drafts and outgoing (SMTP) emails so you have a copy should you need it.

In short, if you're unhappy with web email (I *rarely* use it myself) then I strongly suggest learning how to use an email reader program. They're simple (basically) -- if you can log onto a computer you can set up an email account-- and they avoid a LOT of hassle (unless you're paranoid about people gaining access to your physical hard drive.)

When Yahoo was facing bankruptcy they fired their CEO and replaced him with very smart 39 year old named Marissa Myers from Google. She did a lot of really good things and Yahoo was definitely showing a sizable profit. Unfortunately she felt that Yahoo Mail Classic was not as good as Google's Gmail and she decided to remake Yahoo Mail to be like Gmail. There have been many problems since then. People's accounts or lists of contacts have disappeared, attachments first couldn't be made and now that they can be made they can't be opened. Hundreds of Thousand of complaints were made in the first week. Right now it's not you or the person sending you the attachments - it's the constantly patching going on that has made it impossible to open them. I can't. Fortunately I also have a Gmail account and am using that until the dust clears. It's a real shame - Yahoo Mail Classic was much nicer than Gmail.

If you are using classic style of yahoo then try to upload attachments in new stylus yahoo.
If you have a same problem with attachment button then your computer is harmed with virus that has disabled your attachment button to access it.

After installing the new yahoo I can't open any of my mail with attachments. What can I do to correct this?

This is a known issue with the New version Yahoo Mail. As a workaround to this problem, you can switch to the older version of Yahoo Mail (Yahoo Mail Classic)

To switch to Yahoo! Mail Classic (Old Yahoo), on your Yahoo Mail page click the Options link in the upper right corner between Help and Mobile, 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.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.
