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.
OMG! You're the best. I've been trying to resolve this problem for WEEKS. It totally worked. FYI, two tech people couldn't figure it out and I was afraid I'd have to reload Vista or something. THANKS!
