    Good advice am sure but.........where do I find the symantec control panel - have been offered option by Yahoo to get new mailbox but will lose all previously saved attachments addresses etc - sounds as if there is something wrong with the mailbox maybe? What do you think? Thanks for very prompt reply am most grateful.

Can't open attachments in yahoo mail but can open them in Hotmail. Using the same browser, IE9. This just started doing this about 5 days ago. It worked perfectly for 4 months. Don't know of...

On the Internet explorer browser do the following settings-
Tools->Internet Options->Security->Custom Level Button.
Go down to where the heading is Downloads. Find this:
File download

Check Off the Enable option.

If still the problem persist then reset the browser-
Tools>internet option>Advanced>Reset

Dear Sir/Madam, I cannot open my main

it is just part of the glitch in Yahoo!'s new format.
Server Farm incompatibility is usually the problem.
Thousands are having many different problems with their e-mail.
This applies to almost all areas of mail (including signing in, composing, receiving, sending, attachments, photos, etc.), original and beta mail, messenger and search problems. I have been sent mail that is dated as far back as 8 days. But I do get it!!! The same thing applies to their recieving my mail, for the last few weeks.
Yahoo! is wrapping up a few remaining compatibility issues between Yahoo! Mail Beta (beta testing lasts for at least 6 months!!!) and the new Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.
1. You will have less problems with original mail if you sign in via Messenger! Go to preferences, general, then check box: Automatically sign me in when I click a Yahoo! link in Messenger.
2. Or if you don't have Yahoo Messenger:
Beta wouldn't let me in so I went to beta help and it said to click on my toolbar mail icon. So I did and it worked!
3. Or if you don't have beta mail: can be used to sign into Yahoo!, then put yahoo back into the address bar and hit go. It will take you back to Yahoo! and you can open mail normally. Otherwise, you can open mail in wap, but it is blind. I had to go through wap each time I logged in.
4. BETA means TESTING!!!
So, it seems we have to stop using these two programs (if you installed them) or try to work around them until they finish wrapping things up. Your IE6 is still installed, so you just have to go to: Start, settings/control panel, add/remove programs and delete IE7. For Beta mail you only have to use the switch back option located in your mail inbox.Also, where you sign in by clicking on: Are you having trouble?. You can keep trying them periodically!

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.

2 days ago I tried to open an attachment in an email message and received a message that said "Virus Scanner is Currently Not Available". I now cannot open any attachments in any emails. I don't know what...

I don't know how the problem was fixed, perhaps after performing 2 complete scans on my laptop. I can now open email attachments. Thank you anyway.
