Beta - No More Forward As Attachment?
- With regular Yahoo! mail, you have the option to either forward
messages as inline text or as attachments. Also, in the mail options
you can select which forwarding method you prefer for your default.
I have forward as attachments selected. With Yahoo! Mail Beta,
however, I cannot find any way to forward a message as an attachment.
Clicking on the forward button automatically generates an inline text
- This is a crucial element in the Y! web mail
implementation. "Forwarding as attachment" eliminates the need to go
through the painfully redundent process of downloading and uploading
the same attachments in order to forward them to another.

- Sorry for my "late" response to this message, I completely agree
about the "forwarding" problem with Beta. I've already sent 2
feedbacks about this one. Not having the forwarding "as an
attachment" option is a problem.
I am the moderator for a school listserve, and it is set up to ask
for moderator approval before messages can be posted. Under the
YMail Beta system, I can't give the proper approval, because I can't
forward the approved messages back to the board...Why? Because
under Beta, I can't send a forwarded message as an attachment. Only
having the "inline text" option is a major headache. Now, whenever
I have to approve messages, I have to switch back to the "old"
version of YMail before doing so. This is such a waste of valuable
If they've already incorporated a drop box with options on
the "Reply" button, why not do the same for the "Forward" button? I
thought the point of this exercise was to make the system more user-
Just my 2-cents worth...
