    The thread expired on this but I need to get some kind of answer. I am using Win 7 and ATT Yahoo email. I can't paste pics from my computer into the body of the email. Is there a way to do this without buying upgrades or applications? If there are free applications I can deal with that but it's so frustrating to get emails from friends with dozens of pics in the body of the email and I can't paste one.

    Thanks.

    You can't paste pictures from your hard drive into Yahoo! Mail. They won't stick.

    You need to use a free image hosting site to do this:

    ImageShack

    Photobucket

    Once you've uploaded your pictures there, you can then copy and paste them into Yahoo! Mail.

    Okay thanks. So there is no workaround or application that will enable me to paste into the body of the email using Yahoo? Is there a reason that most other email services let you do that but not Yahoo?
    I'm curious why that option isn't allowed.

    Thanks again.

    Webmail usually do not give you that option. You can do it with an email client like Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail...

    However, I think it can be done with Gmail.
