Plain Text and Email Attachments in Yahoo Mail

If you prefer to write emails in plain text, which doesn't support formatting options like bold or italicized text, links, and images, you can still use attachments and forward messages containing them. Basic and Yahoo Mail support attaching and passing along files.

To turn on plain text mode in Yahoo Mail, select the ellipses at the bottom of a message window and select the Tx icon in the menu that appears.
