  • Try changing the file name and make sure it doesn’t contain any special characters such as *, #, @ etc.
  • The official Yahoo forum provides a list of Yahoo supported browsers, check them and use them for accessing the Yahoo account.
  • Also, make sure you are accessing your email account through latest version of the browser. Yahoo works best with latest browser versions.
  • Yahoo has restricted some file extensions considering them malicious such as .bat, .exe and .jar. Check your attachment file for these extensions.
