Can not read email


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.

if this fails to fix the problem
If you accidentally delete an important email, you may want to reset your Yahoo! email account to a previous time to recover it.

This is possible by filing a Yahoo! email restoration request.
Unfortunately, Yahoo! is unlikely to be able to reset an email account to a time period more than 24 hours in the past, although it may be possible in some cases.

Visit the Yahoo! email recovery site (see Below).
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/basics/basics-01.html

Click on "Please use this form" next to the name of the Yahoo! Mail version you use (All New Yahoo! Mail or Classic).


Select the time period you want to reset your Yahoo! email account to in hours. For example, if you wanted to go back eight hours, select "8."

Type your Yahoo! username, name and email address.
If you aren't signed in, you'll need to enter your password as well.

Click on "Submit" to submit your request to Yahoo! technical support.

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.

I WANT TO EMAIL PHOTOS AND I DONT KNOW HOW


How to send a photograph attached to an e-mail It's easy to send a photography to us or to anybody else, using the software that you normally use to send email. However, you can't attach a photo file or any other kind of file unless you know exactly where it's located on your computer. Most pictures will be located within the overall folder "My Pictures" which is within the folder "My Documents"
  1. Compose a message in your email software, such as America Online or Outlook Express
  2. Find the button for attachments on your email software. It may look like a paper clip and it will probably say "attach files".
  3. Click on that button. An explorer window will open.
  4. Navigate to the folder where the file you want to send is located. For example, mypictures/2007Jan/0123.jpg
  5. Click on the name of the picture or other file.
  6. If you want to send more than one file, hold down the "control" key and click on the additional file names.
  7. The display of the email message you're sending will have change. It will now say something like "attachments (1) 0123.jpg"
  8. The message will probably also tell you the size of the file(s) you have attached - "140KB" for example.
  9. Press "send"
  10. Email with attachments takes longer to upload than plain text. If your photos are large, it may take a minute or more.

How can I attach files exceding the limit in the yahoomail, like how can I attach a one hour video?


Its not possible !! You will never be able to attach file with more than 4 mB size.

To overcome these restrictions there are file sharing services like rapidshare, hotfile, fileshare, filesonic etc. You can upload the file there (you originally want to attach ) after uploading the file you will get a link and then provide that link to the person and he/she can download the file using that link.

Thanks !!

I want to mail my power point presentation,i am trying to copy and paste it on the page from where we send messages but there is no paste option there pls tell me how to mail a presentation file?


Sorry it's not possible to paste clipboard on a yahoomail body. But if you just need to send your powerpoint presentation to someone, then just attach the file. After opening a new/compose email, you'll see a button "attach" ("all new mail" theme: above the address bar of the "To", Old "classic" theme" Just below the "Subject" box). Click attach and browse the file on your computer, select it an open/ok, and click "Attach" again on the attach window. Good luck. Thank you for using FixYa.

I want to attach & send pictures in my yahoo


There are two main theme in yahoomail, one is "Classic" and the other is "All New Mail"
To attach file/photo from classic, Click new or compose and look carefully just below the "subject" bar, there you'll see a button "Attach File", to attach file, click on the button, browse the file and follow the instructions.
Similar procedures for the "All New Mail", the difference is only the "attach file" button location, after you've opened the compose or new, look at the top columns, you'll see, "Send" "Attach" etc,, just above the "To" box. I hope this helps. Good luck, Thanks for using FixYa.

Trouble uploading photos from camera to easyshare on laptop


If your using a memory card card go out and buy a memory card reader. These plug into your computer and will download pictures onto your computer much faster than a USB cable attached to your camera. If all the pictures on your camera appear okay with a card reader you problem is solved.
