I have been unable to download any attachments from my yahoo emails. The statement "The requested URL was not found on this Server"always pops up. What by the way is URL? This has been happening only in the last two weeks. Prior to this I never had any problem opening attachments. I am not extremely computer savvy, so I don't know what to do to fix it. I still have the caveman dial up internet service with AOL, could this be a possible cause? I would really appreciate anyone who could help me with this, I need to be able to open up attachments for my job, and going to the unemployment office or Library to open my attachments is very inconvenient and time consuming. HELP!
I had the same problem, which had to do with my anti-virus (Trend Micro). I had to go into Virus Controls; then Protection Against Viruses; click on Settings and uncheck the box that said "Threats in Web mail attachments". Remember, Yahoo uses Norton to download attachments so you can't have two virus protections "running" at the same time.

I can't open the email attachments on my yahoo emails. I keep getting the error message saying that the URL server could not be found on this system. is there anything I can do to fix this I am not a computer person so I wouldn't know when to look for things to make changes. Please help I have called everyone and no one knows what the problem is thanks.
I had the same problem and could not open attachments in Yahoo email. I went to Microsoft and found a solution.
Go to Internet Explorer and disable the Add Ons.
They are under the Tools and the Manage Add-Ons. I disabled all of them and then checked my email and the attachment opened. I then went back and enabled 1 at a time until I found the one that caused the problem. Mine happened to be under Mcaffee, the proxy, so all others could be enabled again. I left the proxy one disabled and everything is good again. Hope this helps you.
I'm having the same problem unable to open attachments/pics since this paty fall. I'm thinking about going to another email service. Why doesn't Yahoo Tech fix this problem.
Somebody suggested changing to m.yahoo.com/mail which they said has no Norton Anti Virus program.
This would make sense since my computer has an anti virus program and all the other security necessary.
Another suggestion was that a computer's anti virus program and Norton is too much anti virus and makes opening attachments a problem.
i keep trying to send pics and the attachments wont upload for hours. just says attaching but not attachment completed. Try the send button, the awnser is attachment not finished. Could you help me fix it?
I had the same problem of downloading attachments from my Internet Explorer on Yahoo Mail, so I opened a new browser with Google Chrome and everything is back to normal; I got ride of Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox since. I must say Google is easy and simple and you don't have to click this and that; fast it is.
