Previewing an attachment before sending an email.

I can't open and check an attachment before I send an email in this new YAHOO mail? I always want to verify the attachment is correct before hitting send and it won' open in this new YAHOO mail. HELP

Right, currently you can only preview attachments on received/sent emails, but not while composing. You can submit feedback to our team about this here.

Its a bit of a pain, but when you are about to send your email, and attachment, click the "X", to send it to "Drafts". Go to drafts, and select same email. To the right of selected draft, there is a small page icon to the left of the trash bin. Click it for preview.

Re: Previewing an attachment before sending an email.

@deniseh

Since you are attaching it you can see the name. Since the origin is your computer just open it there rather than the email site.

 

When you view an attachment in email you are actually downloading it to a temp file first. Since it is already on your computer that seems to be a waste of overhead.

Feel free to reply if my question or answer is not clear. Include @Barkley_Hound in the post.
