      In restoring long lost radio programmes from off-air tapes I
      frequently have to email MP3s to contacts overseas.


      However for as long as the Yahoo Neo fiasco started - uploading has
      been very slow.


      The main issue - and which Yahoo is doing northing to address - is the
      double uploading of files.


      Having chosen the files to attach to an email I then click on Attach Files.


      Yahoo then goes through an uploading sequence. At the end of this it
      should switch back to the email body. However every time it insists on
      re-uploading the file for a second time.


      Yet the file itself is only attached once. So why the double uploading.


      This pertains for Neo Basic and FF.

        Chris,
         
        I'm not sure what you are doing.  I use Basic and I click on Attach Files.  Doing that takes me to a page where I can click on a button to Browse for the file I want to attach.  After I have my file selected, then I click on Attach Files because browsing for the file doesn't automatically attach them.  Once I click on Attach Files then I get taken to my message that I am composing and can see that the file that I selected is attached.  I do not have a problem with files being double attached.

        Seems like the best way to share such files, rather than by email, would be to upload them to an online file sharing service and then send out sharing invites.

          Seems like the best way to share such files, rather than by email, would be to upload them to an online file sharing service and then send out sharing invites.  If you have a Gmail account then you have a Google Drive account.  You could upload them there and send out share emails which will contain links to the file you're sharing rather than the file itself.  Much more efficient and you won't be filing peoples email accounts with large attachments.

            Donna -


            I do that exactly as you described - and no double clicks either.


            Sometimes it presents me with a list of files, and I choose the one I want. I click Open and it then presents me with the same list of files again, I choose the one I want (for the second time) and click on Open, and it may present me with the same list of files for the third time. Finally it decides that I really do want to attach a file and the name appears in the 'to be attached' list.


            Then I click on Attach Files. It uploads each file at a time, from 0% to 100%, then uploads it all over again.


            When it switches to the email itself the files are actually only attached once (no duplicates).

            I'm not sure what you are doing.  I use Basic and
            I click on Attach Files.  Doing that takes me to a page
            where I can click on a button to Browse for the file I want

            Attach Files because browsing for the file doesn't
