The mail service or ISP you are using has a limit on the size of an email you can send. This is usually quite large, for example Hotmail has a limit of 10Mb for a single email.

Now, either your email service has an unusually low limit or maybe you are attaching files that are way to large. It is unlikely that documents or images would cause this but if you are attaching videos or programs you can soon get up to this level.

Check the limit imposed by your email service and check the size of your attachments against it.

I am new to Yahoo and I cannot seem to attach anything. It just sits there saying that it needs time. I never had this problem with Comcast. What do I need to do t resolve it?


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 size 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

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
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
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
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.

Nowadays i suffer from a problem to send the mail because every time whenever i send the mail i receive the failure notice. And after that i use another mail id using gmail account to send the same mail...


please try first to send a test mail to your own email address.if you were able to receive the test mail, it's not the yahoo issue.you need to ask the receiver to check his/her list of blocked email addresses. it could be that yahoo was included in the list.

I can't send any mail to yahoo mail client I recieve the return-mail said as shown below; Sent from Mail Delivery System <Mailer-Daemon@sv.mydomainservers.net> This message was created...


This is probably because your Yahoo account to which you are trying to send in emails to has some typing error in it, or it is not active and is deactivated for some or the other reason.

This message exceeded the Maximum Message Size set in Account Settings, so we have only downloaded the first few lines from the mail server. Click here to download the rest of the message.


These errors mean that the size of the message, including all headers, text and attachments, exceeds the domain's maximum per-message size limit - essentially, that the email is too big to be accepted.
This means that the message wasn't sent because it was too big. You need to take out something from the email to that it's small enough to send.

Delivery Status means what happened with the delivery eg sent, failed.

The recipient domain didn't accept the email because it was too large.
I would advise you to send the email in 2 smaller packages.

Also:

Features Yahoo! Mail Plus Yahoo! Mail Message size limit 25MB 25MB Filters 200 100 POP access Yes No Forwarding Yes No Yahoo! AddressGuard Yes No No promotional taglines in messages Yes No No graphical ads Yes No No account expiration Yes No

25MB message size
Send and receive up to 25MB per message. That means sharing lots of photos, music, video, and presentations without worrying about bumping up against message limits.

Email problems


The 550 indicates the mail was blocked and the 5.1.1 is an additional indicator as to why. I don't have the 5.1.1 code, but the most common reason for a picture to be blocked is the size of the picture. Today you can get away with up to about 2MB picture, after that some servers will reject the picture. If yo MS Office, use the picture manager utility to resize the picture down. Then re-attempt the send.

If this works, please leave feedback, because it is the only way my rating goes up. thans.

Box with cross in top left corner of photo unable to open


It may be that the original photo is too large and exceeds either theirs or your ISP's attachment limit.  Talk to the people sending you these messages and find out how big the pics are.  They may need to resize to a smaller file size before they send them.
