Can't open yahoo email attachments

I'm not able to open any attachments on my yahoo email acct but can open attachments when i forward the email to my gmail acct. the computer attempts to open the attachment but i get an error message that states that i'm not connected to the internet, the website is encountering problems, there might be a typing problem error in the address. I cannot open MS Word attachments, but I can open other attachments such as pdf or excel docs. What can the problem be?

I emailed a video from my phone to my yahoo acct so I could save it to my computer...The email shows that there is an attachment but when I open it up it is just a blank email with no attachment???

If the video file was too large, Yahoo will have blocked it from going through, yet it may still appear in your inbox.
You will need to use a different mail service, or more likely, use a file upload service, such as this one, from your phone.
Alternatively, you can copy the video to your SD card and then move the SD card to your computer. You may also be able to use the USB Cable which came with your phone.
Please remember to vote for me if you like my solution.

Forward the mail to another email account and check if you can open the attachment. Or try using Yahoo mail classic. Let me know the result. Thanks for joining Fixya. Have a nice day.

Forwarding emails that have an attachment

its a possibility you may have some kind of anti-virus software on your computer that is blocking the attachment. or it could just be your security settings on yahoo itself. my suggestion if that doesnt work, even though it might be tedious, is to download the attachment and then re-upload it manually to the email you're sending out.
