Hi there, i'm Tim. What are you using for email?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I think you mean Yahoo
Expert:  Tim replied 11 months ago.

So you access your email through a browser, and it is yahoo, correct?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
correct
Expert:  Tim replied 11 months ago.

Ok, So the Folks at Yahoo do not allow forwarding of attachments, at least through the browser, you have to download them and reattach them, I can't tell you why they do that, but they do.

Expert:  Tim replied 11 months ago.

Yeah, other services like gmail do not have that restriction, i usually encourage folks to switch to gmail if they are not married to their current provider.

Expert:  Tim replied 11 months ago.

But i usually encourage them to switch for security reasons and not functionality, though gmail does have the best function and features of any service provider i am aware of.

Using the same system i have always used , I was always able to send a forward just as I recieved it with pictures with no problems. not photos from my albums.
Expert:  Tim replied 11 months ago.

Ok, interesting. I was going off of what i was reading from Yahoo. So this is true for any message you try to forward?

Expert:  Tim replied 11 months ago.

There are many reports of Yahoo dropping forward attachments in the last few years, really odd.
