    I'm having this problem of attachments not opening up in Yahoo Mail. Running XP-SP2 home edition, the problem just showed up. open the letter and the attachment photos showing just a page format as the thumbnail, no picture. Downloading and opening the picture, the picture shows up. Attachments I've received earlier shows the pictures in the thumbnail.
    What is preventing me from seeing the attachment thumbnails pictures?

    What are the file extensions on the attachments? It's possible that your browser doesn't have those file types associated with an application, but when you download them, WinXP has an application assigned to that type of file, so it opens correctly.

    The file extensions are .jpg, same as the earlier ones.

    I've set up a 2nd Yahoo Mail account, forward the original message with the attachment, not showing the thumbnail pictures to the second mail account. I open the message and the attachments show the thumbnail pictures. Sending and receiving the messages on the same computer.

    I did that to eliminate any problems with the settings for Yahoo. What could be making one account to show the thumbnails and the other not showing.

    Check the mail options for the account that doesn't show the images. Under the spam protection option, check the image blocking setting.

    I've tried to send an email to my yahoo mail via java mail, but the attachment seems to be hidden. There is no attachment icon for me to click on, as if it is only a mail with message. I forwarded the same mail to my gmail account, and is able to access the attachment. I continued to forward the mail back to my yahoo mail via gmail, and I am able to get the attachment.

    May I know why I am not able to get the attachment when I send that message to my yahoo mail?? while I have no problem with gmail.

    All help are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
