Hope this help. Now let's try a few thing

1. First. Yahoo Beta Mail? Is that what you are using?
If so Clear your browsers cashe.
In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
On the General tab, under Browsing history, click Delete.
Click Delete files, and then click Yes.
Click Close, and then click OK.
You did that right? Now Completely re-Download all your messages. Every one of them.
Wait until they are downloaded. Don`t hurry. Hows that?
2. Well try this. = 2. In the new Yahoo! Mail, you don’t do this with your browser anymore.
Now, just change your
character encoding setting right in Yahoo! Mail!

Here’s how:

In the toolbar, click More Actions and select Set Encodings.
From the list that appears, select the encoding that matches the message’s content.
Note: Only one character encoding set may be viewed at a time. And in this case,
changing your
browser’s encoding setting will not work. Hows that?
Still can`t get it? Try Switch Back at the top of your page. (Don`t worry you can return)
Hows that?
3. Now you are in Original Mail Right? Messages all there?
If not try this. = Select any email where the header information is displayed, but there is
nothing in the
"body" of the message where you would expect to find text, etc.
Move your mouse to the area of the expected "body" of the message and right-click...on
the menu that appears, click on "Encoding"...on the menu that appears, if "Auto Select"
has a check mark, leave it as is...if not click "Auto Select"; then this menu will
disappear...right click again in the "body" to cause the same menu to display again...then
click on "Western European (Windows)" should now be able to view the "body" of
all messages that you couldn't view before...obviously, if the problem somehow occurs
again, do the same procedure described above again. I have no idea how or why these
settings get "changed" or "corrupted" after everyday use, but apparently they sometimes
Hows that?
Now if those steps dont work do the following below.

Ok PC has problems then. Update your operating system, Browser, Shockwave Flash ,
Java. Everything. Get all patches. The whole works. Also try Firefox browser.

Note in Original / Old / Yahoo Mail in a pinch try this. =
Put message in Print Copy. Then read it. OR
Click Reply on Message to read it. Then backbutton out. OR
Put message in Excel or Wordpad to read it

Thank you. Please ket me know the results

This is cause by some plugin error.

1- create a "NEW USER ACCOUNT" from 'control panel>user account for yourself and restart your computer.
2- login to the new user account and go to control panel> user accounts, and then delete ur old user account ( u may want to save your personal folder and files when prompt)( if you want to save your internet explorer favourites , do it manually )

Motorola A780

the a780 handset only has the o2 network as default.
to have your phone run with another network sim card, you must call your phone company,ie t-mobile,orange,etc and explain to them you need the browser update msg sent to your handset for picture msgs and also ask for the internet browser update msg too.
when you get the browser msgs sent to your phone, open it and press the left green button, i think? it will give the option to update, you press update.

and all done, happy picture msg. andy. :0)
