    Hello all,

    I can't drag and drop or paste a jpeg into my yahoo message in safari. Whenever I try either option, the image address is pasted instead - very frustrating!

    I've tried pasting it from my desktop as well as from Word for Mac...I've even tried copying and pasting the image from an email forwarded to me into a new message, and nothing works.

    What am I overlooking???!...

    Thanks for any tips / insight!

    I hate to break this to you, but you can't do what you are trying to do. In order to attach a file to a webmail message, you must upload the file to the provider's server. In the case of Yahoo Mail, you must click the Attach paperclip icon right next to the Send envelope icon. This brings up a file browser dialog which you can use to locate the file that you need to attach.
