Picture attachment problems

Picture attachment problems

I just found out that any time I attach a picture to an email, when the receipient clicks on download, they get a large file containing hundreds of my pictures & clips that they can scroll through. I don't even recognize some of these (company logos, product pictures, etc) but some of them are private pictures that I have received in emails from others. I am clicking on the paper clip icon, selecting attach a file, and then just double-clicking on a single picture. How do I attach just a single picture.

I'm not using an app - just accessing from my desktop. It seems to happen everytime I send a .jpg. I'll try to remember to send snipits or .pdf s until I can figure out what I'm doing wrong.

thanks

Thanks for the reply. Where should I send the email? My own email address? the Help Community no-reply?

No, they cannot. Only working Yahoo employees can further investigate.

Just to doublecheck. How are you accessing your account? Are you using any 3rdparty app?

Does this happen when sending to a specific sender or any sender?
