Yahoo webmail not accepting outgoing mail attachments

  1. Afternoon all.
    Anyone any ideas why a yahoo webmail account suddenly stopped accepting attachments to outgoing mails?
    There have been no changes on the local system (Apple).
    Creating a new account on the same machine works fine.
    Opening the same account on another Apple gets the same error so the problem has to be with the web mail service.
    Yahoo don't seem to know as they are not responding to cries for help!

    Are you using the older version or did you upgrade to their latest version? I have found Yahoo Mail (I didn't upgrade -- yet) especially with attachments to be extremely chaotic from time to time.

    I have run into the very same problem and I can't tell you why. And then one day I boot up and presto I can do attachments. Weird and no explanation whatsoever.
