attachments in email on windows live mail client

hello

 

i have a very frustrating issue with windows live mail mail 2011 client - essentially it won't download attachments. I can see them on yahoo webmail but they aren't being pulled down into the client. i have ensure that I have un-checked the setting in security under virus protection for "do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus".

 

I have a feeling people are going to tell me to move to a better client (outlook, thunderbird etc) but i'd prefer to try and sort this issue out rather than migrate all my mail...

 

any ideas anyone?

Not really, apart from trying a different mail client to see if it makes any difference.

 

There are instructions for Thunderbird here Thunderbird setup for BT Yahoo e-mail
