In yahoo, the attachment shows up at the lower, left-hand side of the message window when complete. Be sure you're allowing the time required for it to upload before sending.

Also, there's a limit on size & type of attachments. If you're trying to send an ".exe" file (executable file which launches something when clicked)- you first must compress it as a .zip to send (for safety reasons). 7-Zip, from sourceforge, will do the trick. Once installed, right-click your file--> add to archive, name it, & change the type to ".zip" (most universal) format.

Now, try attaching.

Email attachments

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.

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.

Probably a software (i.e., Yahoo) problem. One way around this is to get Outlook Express configured on your PC for Yahoo Mail. Yahoo should have instructions for this. If you do this, you can go to Yahoo to delete any mail you don't want to keep. Then, when you open Outlook Express, any mail still in your Yahoo inbox will download to your PC. Outlook Express shows a paper clip where an attachment is present. You would double-click on the mail item to open it. The little window over the main window you just opened shows attachments. If the item is something you want to save, select File, and Save Attachments. Sometimes, on forwarded mail, you have to double-click on that little window to open that item, then save the attachments as above.
