Normal typed emails are ok, attaching a .jpg did not carry as risk I
though!


In the past, I recall Freeserve blocking (outgoing) mail if it had some
attachment (probably only blocking .exe, but one solution was to ZIP it
before attempting to send). Perhaps this blocking of incoming JPGs is
to deal with the spammers who put info as a JPG to allow them to bypass
many spam blocking apps... Perhaps Yahoo has 'whitelisted' some senders
such as ebay.com/ svp.co.uk/ evesham.com/ etc...
