How to stop norton from preventing me to attach images on yahoomail

Yahoo Mail is a Web-based email program that is provided for free by Yahoo. Anyone can sign up for the service to send and receive emails from friends and family. Yahoo places restrictions on the and type of attachments that can be sent and received when using Yahoo Mail. Any email attachment that contains a virus, is too large or doesn't meet the file type requirements may be blocked by Yahoo.

Virus Scanner b> Yahoo Mail scans each attachment that arrives or departs from your inbox with Norton AntiVirus. If the virus scanning software detects a virus within an attachment, Yahoo will warn you and attempt to clean it. Yahoo does not promise that every virus will be detected or cleaned by the Norton AntiVirus software. Only accept attachments from people you know and trust. Don't attempt to open blocked attachments if it is known to harbor a virus. Large Attachments b> Attachments exceeding 25 megabytes will not attach to an email. Multiple attachments that exceed 25 megabytes will also be blocked by Yahoo Mail. Once your attachments reach 25 megabytes, you will no longer be able to add any additional attachments. If you have many attachments to send that exceed 25 megabytes, send several emails to send all of the attachments. If you are receiving attachments, let the sender know that you are unable to receive any attachments larger than 25 megabytes. Slow Connection Speed b> It may appear that Yahoo is blocking your attachments if you have a slow dial-up connection because they may never appear to load. Yahoo isn't actually blocking the attachment, the connection is just very slow. A 25 megabyte file could take over an hour to download with a 56K dial-up connection. Your computer may go to sleep or the download may be even slower if you surf the Web while your files upload. File Type b> Only certain file types can be sent using Yahoo Mail. Yahoo Mail allows you to add audio files, images, HTML files, word processing documents, spreadsheets and many other types of files as attachments. Some documents are not supported, but you can send unsupported file types by renaming them, including them in a RAR or ZIP archive, creating a Word document with the file, sending the file through Yahoo Messenger or you can upload the file elsewhere and send a link to the file via email.

Yahoo mail want send e-mails with attachments

did you take a microsoft update recently? they patched some holes last week, it may be tripping their security protocal that may be the reason it stoped. Try a restore back to when it started, otherwise it's just a guess, as if you didn't change anything, then someone did it for you like Bill Gates. You could also check your security settings in your browser, that may have been elevated thus preventing the email from working the way you like, only one more thing it could be, is that some email is stuck in your outbox, check that first, by going in and looking and possibly getting into safe mode to revove the emai that may be jamming you up.
