What determines whether Yahoo Mail Classic will display an attachment icon for an embedded picture?
Posted on 2009-04-21
I am running Outlook 2000 SP-3 on a Windows XP SP3 o.s.
Email # 1: Sent to me from an outside company. It has a logo as part of its signature.
Email # 2: I right click the logo in email # 1 and save it as "picture1.jpg" to my desktop. I create a new signature in Outlook and insert picture1.jpg into my signature. I compose a new email that for the purposes of this discussion we will call email # 2.
I send both to a Yahoo account:
Email # 1 is forwarded to the Yahoo account from my Outlook.
Email # 2 is sent directly to the Yahoo account from my Outlook (since my Outlook is composing a new email).
In the Yahoo account,
Email # 1 has *no* attachment icon in Inbox view. When the message is opened, the embedded logo is visible in the body of the email.
Email # 2 has an attachment icon in Inbox view. The embedded logo is visible in the body of the email. The embedded logo is also listed in the attachments section with a link where the attachment can be scanned and downloaded.
Why does one show no attachments and the other show attachments?
