Show Attachment Icon
Usually people do not like changes, but in this case the changes are not good.
1.- Showing the attachments on TOP of the e-mail is useful for verification that we have attached a file.
(It should come back this feature)
2.- Showing the attachment on TOP and the type of attachment too ie (PDF, JPEG, RAR, etc)
(This feature is very important because our company received hundreds of spam e-mails asking us to open an attachment. If we recognize as RAR or ZIP we do not open the attachments).
3.- Please remember that changes should show improvement and benefit. In this case having an attachment at the bottom without showing the ICON of the type of attachment is not helpful at all.
It's very inconvenient having to scroll down to the bottom to find the attachments. Also please change the font colour to black so they're easier to see down there.
Send button and Attachments need to be back at the top of an e-mail instead at the bottom---the bottom could be at the bottom of a 20 e-mail chain.
This send and attahed on the bottom is very difficult on my small laptop screen PUT IT BACK up there or tell me how to put it back.
Move ATTACHMENTS back to TOP of page!! I send numerous attachments and have to keep checking to see if they attach because you cannot see them w/o scrolling down 10 pages!!
It is a horrible design!! Truly amateurish, at best. SEND button should be the TOP TOO!!
What would any website want the main navigation removed from all functionality??
Gmail is looking better and better (I pay for Yahoo!)
Listen to your users!!
I do not like the send button at the bottom of the screen. I also do not like the attachments at the bottom of the full e-mail. Better at top. Why are attachment titles/icon not showing when I print out an e-mail? They did in the past. I need that information. I find it very difficult to get answers to problems. HELP!!
MY CLIENTS are replying that I forgot the attachment... if MY CLIENTS are used to seeing attachments at the top of emails... I would appreciate it if yahoo would not think it is in my best interest to retrain MY CLIENTS... PLEASE put the attachments back at the top of the email.
Sounds like a great idea to me. Makes things more professional if you know that there is something you may have to create an answer back based upon what is in the attachment.
A paper clip icon at the top tells me nothing, other than that there is an attachment. There is easily room on the same line to display the file name, type of file, and the size. Then it will be a much quicker more convenient decision of whether to open it, download it, delete the email, etc.
Just out of curiosity, I checked to see what the top ranked issue is on the feedback page.....You're kidding, right?? Stationery is the 1st ranked issue. With all of these glitches.....Fix the auto-suggest, fix the "me" address problem, fix the BCC issue, fix the sub-folder issue, fix the filters not working issue, fix the attachment icon issue (and these are just the issues I am having personally)......the list goes on and on. And yet the 1st ranked issue is noted as stationery. And support has it noted as "Started - you asked, we listened". Please get with your programmers and fix the glitches first.
And showing the size of the attachment is important too. With my internet, if someone sends me a 5MB photo, I don't want to download it. I want to see right away what kind of file it is, AND how big it is.
Yes, please move the attachments back to the top of the email and include the type of attachment.

Your suggestion is simply good design. I suspect Yahoo saw that Google did the same thing (attachments at the bottom...) and thought that's what they should do. I would very much like to have attachments at the top again.
The attachments really should be on top like they were before. If you have to attach something to a long email chain, there is a good chance it will get lost on the bottom and some people will not see it.
Ok, I see you have now added an attachment icon at the top of the email which when clicked takes me to the attachments at the bottom. This is definitely an improvement.
An error occurred while uploading.
If I forwarded an attachment it was easy for the receiver to view prior to changes. I hardly use this except to receive my statements now.
I liked and understood this email service before the new changes. I have never had another account and I'm ready to change. No longer happy with it especially the mobile app. Simple is better. If I forward an email or attachment, my receiver should not have a hard time finding it. It should be viewable the same way I send it. No Longer Happy with Yahoo Mail:(
Attachments really need to be at top of emails. When email conversations are long you have no way of knowing that there is an attachment now that they are placed at the very bottom of the conversation. I have missed attachments many times since this change occurred and it's embarrassing, annoying and time consuming for both sender and receiver.
Also, please show the presence of attachments when email messages are printed!

I am using yahoo since 1998 i foun good service
But some time not sending my mails and not sign in in any other device .
Please easy my system
Being able to SEND from the TOP of the page rather than the bottom would also be WONDERFUL!
A real bonus would be that a print of an email includes an indication that the email had come with attachments. So simple. So helpful.
I want to send photos by I mail but will
Yes... please return the attachments to the TOP of the email... or... provide an "Attachment Location" option in the settings. I'm hard pressed to understand who would like their attachments at the bottom of the email???
Totally agree with this feedback.

I'm having issues with Yahoo every blessed day. Emails I'm sending are often not arriving, I'm not receiving some emails, and I can't attach a file. Often I have to try a couple of times to open my inbox. Yahoo mail service started to get bad a while ago, and is just getting worse.
