Unable to open video attachments to email

When I attempt to open a video attachment to an email, it gets routed to my itunes library page where it does not appear, and therefore can't be opened.
.... After checking for viruses, and downloading the complete video file, my computer just sends all the info to this itunes page where they just seem to disappear.
Text-type document attachments on my emails are opened normally and perfectly. It only gets mis-routed when the file is a video. Thank you! Lee

Mail From Yahoo


Yahoo Mail is a popular webmail service that allows people to create their own email username and have it hosted by the Yahoo network.
In addition to providing fast and reliable email, Yahoo Mail also allows you to send and receive large attachments.
If you use Yahoo Mail, and are having issues opening attachments, there are several easy troubleshooting steps you can try to get your Yahoo Mail attachments.
Sign out of Yahoo and clear your cache.
Since Yahoo! needs to access your cache to keep you logged in and to communicate with your computer when downloading attachments, a full cache can prevent Yahoo Mail from opening attachments correctly.
Go to your browser's "Tools" or "Internet Options" menu and then select the "Delete Temporary Internet files" command to delete your cache.
Reload the page.
lf you have had Yahoo Mail open for a long time, the page may have gone idle, and you may not be able to access your attachment.
Press the "Reload" (F5) button and then log back in to your account.
Ensure that the attachment is not corrupt.
If the sender did not finish uploading before they hit "Send" or there was an error during the upload, the file may be corrupted.
Ask the sender to re-attach the file and send it again.
Check the file format.
Some formats are proprietary and will not open unless specific programs are installed on your computer.
For instance, if you are sent an AAC file, you will not be able to open it unless iTunes is installed on your computer.

Can't get most of my attachments to appear


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 to dowload music


1. Pull out your CDs and start downloading. CDs can be used to download your favorite music from the past. You can search the titles on the back of the CD cover and choose the track numbers you want added to your iPod. Simply attach your iPod to your computer, wait until the iTunes program has appeared and add the music to your library and play list. 2. Use the iTunes store. The great thing about the iTunes store is that it is easily accessible. You can search by artist name, song title or album. The prices appear right next to the song 3. Find a user-friendly music download program. You can either buy a program and install from the Internet or upload a program from a disc. 4. Use your email. Email is much more than just a way to talk online. If your friend has a few songs that you do not have, tell them to email it to you. You can download the music from your email account. Save the songs on your desktop or in a file folder and click and drag the music into iTunes. You will only have to wait a short time for the conversion process! 5. Transfer iTunes libraries from another iPod. If your iPod is fairly new and you don?t have any great music, simply borrow your friend?s music by plugging in your iPod to their iTunes library. A pop up window will appear, asking if you want to use the current library. Simply agree to use the iTunes library and you will have all of their music in a matter of minutes.

Unable to open any attachments


This probably means that you do not have a program associated with the type of attachment you have been receiving. Rather than open the attachments, save them to your computer, and then check if you have a program that can open the attachment.

Email music from itunes.


Click the "attach" button in Mail and browse to the location of the song.
This is usually in your User folder (the little house) in the music folder. Like so:
User name > Music > iTunes > iTunes Music > [artist name] > [album name] > [song title]
Pick the song you want to attach and hit Send.
Several possible "gotchas" though: - Songs you buy from iTunes may be "protected" files. MP3s should be fine. - Some email systems limit the size of file attachments, so your email may not make it.   (Transfer using something like YouSendIt.com instead.)
Hope that helps.
