- Ashlyn ChaseApr 28, 2014I'm sorry...I wasn't talking about Yahoo groups or getting attachments here.
I was talking about personal emails to an individual.
Things like: "Send me the book," when I already sent the book.
Or "Send me the cover," When I already sent the cover.
That kind of thing...

I'm going to point out that some security programs block attachments as a matter of habit. I have fights with my email program & security program over the fact that either one or both don't always allow me to see images that are executable links. Folks that are on digest or get the emails as plain text don't see attachments no matter what device they use. Even though I'm on a computer, I usually have to sign into Yahoo to see the attachments as something other than that tiny little thumbnail link image at the bottom of the message. That's not an outrageous inconvenience for me. I'm a moderator for two other groups, so I log into Yahoo at least a couple times each day to check for pending items and other issues. I have to admit that the new format doesn't make it obvious to the general membership when photos or files are added to the group. The link for checking attachments used to be in plain sight, now it's concealed behind that "more" option. I have to imagine that it's trickier to manage those kinds of menu options with the smaller screen of a smart phone or tablet. Heck, the touchpad on my laptop was enough of a nuisance to my wayward fingers that I broke down and bought a real wired mouse for it. (I figure I'm far less likely to misplace a mouse that's physically tethered to the computer.) Frankly, I learned how to do some things by accident. I had to go through pretty much every single link combination out there to figure out how to moderate a hacked email account or to track down who was really sending porn under false pretenses. It wasn't exactly my idea of fun and I suspect most folks have better things to do with their time - like reading books.
In case you can't guess, I use one or the other real computer because my phone is the dumbest smart phone I could find and it's not allowed to have either text or data. Virginia

I've noticed that people seem to be requesting attachments that I've
It annoying, I tell you...ANNOYING!
I assume this is due to people trying to read their emails on their
phone, iPad or other gizmo that allows email--but doesn't make it easy
to see that an attachment has been added.
Here's the question. Are you guilty? Do you use your phone for email
when you have a perfectly good PC or laptop that makes it clear you have
an attachment? Fess up.
