Yahoo mail causing attachments to disappear

Hi all

Lately in Yahoo, when i try to download an attachment i.e. a zip file or something the file seems to have disappeared and when i go through the process of opening an email, then selecting download attachment or doubleclicking on the actual zip file all it does is bring up the prompt of open at file location or save to disk.

I choose the save to disk option. Then it says the file ame = "SHow letter" and "save as type = html document.

Where have my files gone? Does anyone know what is going on?

Because the file i need is very important and i hope lycos hasn't let me down.

:-)

The Transporter, does this apply to all attachment types?

I just tried it but was able to successfully save or view the attachment (a *.doc file).

Does Yahoo have a filesize limit? Could be the files are to big,so it gets "bounced" or even vanish altogether.I had this happen with my family photos,tried to email them to my sister,and all she got was an empty folder.
