Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

How to Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Email service has been there for a long time. And emails you can do a lot of things with your Yahoo Mail, one of which is attaching files, images to your emails. With Yahoo Webmail Service, you get 1TB of storage that is enough for millions and millions of text emails with attachments. However, it limits the size of the message and the attachment sent via their service. This is enough for text documents, a few images, and other small files. But what happens when you have to send a large file from Yahoo Mail?

Thankfully there are some ways you can follow to send a large file through your Yahoo Mail. Let’s have a closer look at how to send a large file from Yahoo Mail.

Yahoo Mail Attachment Size Limit

Similar to most of the popular email service providers, like Gmail, Yahoo Allows users to send an email of up to 25 MB in size. The size also counts the size of the email message. So, if you are trying to send a file that is exactly of 25MB, you won’t be able to send the file. If that’s the case, you can reduce the size of the message or the attachment, which we will discuss in our next subtopics.

Different Ways to Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

Reducing Size of a Message, You Send

As I have mentioned earlier, the maximum size of the email that Yahoo offers to send at a time is 25 MB. So, if the message you are about to send exceeds the limit a little bit, you can reduce the size of your message by following ways:

  • Compressing the File Before Sending
  • Send Separate Mails if you have multiple files
  • Rather than attaching files send a downloadable link

Now, let’s describe them in detail

Compressing the File Before Sending

There are various desktop and online tools that you can use to compress your files or folders into one.

The most common Desktop tool to compress your file is WinZip and WinRAR. The tool compresses one-to-many files into a zip file that has relatively less size than uncompressed files. Then send your Yahoo email attaching the compressed file. Sending this kind of data, however, requires the receiver to have the same tool to unzip the files.

The most common online tools to compress files are youcompress, pdfcompressor, wecompress, Tinyjped, and so on. These tools require you to upload your files to their web browser and will provide you a compressed folder. You need to download these compressed files and attach them to your Yahoo email. The limitation with the online tool is that you will not get to compress any type of file in one place. Some compressor offers at most two types of files to compress. Meaning, you cannot compress your pdf file on a webpage that compresses images.

Send Separate Mails if you have Multiple Files

Now let’s suppose your compressed files to its extent. However, the file size still exceeds 25MB. You might be thinking about what should you do. This section of the article is for you.

What you can do is. If you have multiple files that you need to send, you can break those files down into small chunks and compress them separately in chunks. Now, the next step is to send those emails messages separately.

For example, I have 30 images with size 1MB each. The total size of the attachment is 50 MB. I used TinyJPEG to compress my images; however, the tool only compressed the image by 25% that led to 37.5MB in total. I can’t send this file, so I again compressed these files using WinRAR, which compressed to further 5%. However, still, I am left with 35.6MB, which I can’t send.

So, the solution is to break down the compressed images into two half and send them in two separate Yahoo emails. this way I can send large file From Yahoo Mail

Send a Downloadable Link

Most of the time, the photographers won’t use compressor tools to compress their images as it will degrade the quality of the picture by a certain amount. And if you have a single file that exceeds the file size that yahoo has limited, then the steps mentioned above won’t work for you. The only option for you is to upload the file somewhere else and sent the shareable link to the receiver adding the link to your email. Now, this is where our next topic comes in.

Fun fact: In earlier days, Yahoo used to charge for POP and IMAP services. But since Gmail gave these services for free, yahoo was forced to give it for free too.

What are POP and IMAP?

Both POP and IMAP are the protocol that email client uses to access the emails from the email server.

POP (Post Office Protocol) is an older protocol that works by contacting your email server and downloading all of your new messages from it to your local application. The major downfall of POP is that once a local machine downloads the email, the emails get deleted from the email server. Hence, if you try to access those emails from the other devices, it won’t be accessible. A lot of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) give you email accounts that use POP.

Some important highlights of POP protocols are:

  • Only downloads email from the server, downloaded emails doesn’t stay on server afterward.
  • Email server doesn’t save the records of emails sent from the email client.
  • Deleting, moving, and modification of emails on the email client sare not reflected on the email server

 

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a newer and more widely used protocol than POP. IMAP is also protocol to access emails from the email server, but when emails client user IMAP to read the email, the mails don’t get downloaded or gets stored in your email client.

However, you have that ability, that power to stop that from happening with just a click on Yahoo Mail; “Unsubscribing newsletter.” So, today, I have come up with a guide that will help you to unsubscribe newsletter in Yahoo Mail.

In this article, I have described six different ways to get rid of the unwanted newsletters in Yahoo Mail. Five of which requires you to unsubscribe, while one is grouping all the newsletter in one filter so that your inbox in free from any newsletter.

Method 1: Unsubscribe Newsletter in Yahoo Mail

Whenever an organization or a service-oriented company send you a newsletter, its compulsory for them to add an unsubscribe link or button on their email.

Unsubscribe Newsletter in Yahoo Mail

And, this method is best when you got the newsletter and want to unsubscribe to that newsletter at the same time.

  1. First, open your browser and go to Yahoo’s official site.
  2. Now to login to Yahoo mail click on “sign-in icon” on the upper right corner of your window
  3. On the sign in page, enter your email address in the email address text box and click the next button. [ you can exclude @yahoo.com, just type in your username. For example, if your email address is [email protected] then you can just type abxyz in the email address textbox]
  4. Now enter your password in the password textbox and click the next button. If your email address and password are matched, you will be directed to your yahoo home page
  5. From the Yahoo homepage, click the mail icon from the upper right corner of your screen. This will take you to your Yahoo mailbox
  6. From the list of the mail on the inbox area, open the newsletter that you want to unsubscribe.
  7. One pro tip: the service provider company that sent you an email to promote a product need to have an unsubscribe button in their email. Most of the time, the unsubscribe link or the button is at the end of the email in the footer area of the email. Once you find an unsubscribe link or the button, click it.
  8. Clicking the unsubscribe link will open up a new Window dialogue box which will ask you if you are sure you want to unsubscribe.
  9. Finally, click the yes button to unsubscribe the newsletter.
  10. In some cases, you will need to visit the email senders’ site to unsubscribe to their newsletter. So visit this site without any hesitation and unsubscribe.
  11. Likewise, some spam message doesn’t contain an unsubscribe link in their emails. So, in such cases, go through the email and make sure if it is a spam message. You have three choices for these kinds of emails. You can delete the email in Yahoo Mail, or you can send the email to the spam folder to restrict theme messages to come up on your inbox; Or block those emails; if you block the email in Yahoo Mail, then the person or the organization won’t be able to send you any further message.

Method 2: Find Newsletter in Bulk and Unsubscribe

the second method in my list for the unsubscribing newsletter is searching for the newsletter and unsubscribing them one by one

  1. Login to Yahoo mail and go to the mailbox area clicking the mail icon.
  2. On the navigation bar of your mailbox, there is a search box you can search any emails if you have the keyword. And in our case keyword is unsubscribe. This is because all the service-oriented company needs to include an unsubscribe link or a button in their email. So if we search and subscribe keyword in the search box, the search result will display only those email that has on subscribe keyword in their email.
  3. In Yahoo Mail, you cannot select all the newsletters and unsubscribe them at once. So you will need to manually open the email one by one and click the answer Scribe button that is on the foot of the email.
  4. If you need the shortcut, click the email and open it in a new tab. This way, you will not have to load each and every email in the same page back and forth.

Method 3: Using Third-party App To Unsubscribe Emails in Bulk

Since Yahoo does not provide you an option to unsubscribe the newsletter at once, we can use a third-party app that is created for this reason. Today we are using unroll.me to unsubscribe bulk email newsletter.

Using Third-party App To Unsubscribe in Bulk

Method 4: Unsubscribe Using Yahoo Mail App

In today’s generation, we often use mobile phones than traditional desktop or laptop computers for our day to day activities. So, most of the popular webmail service providers have created their mobile applications so that it would be readily available at the user’s fingertip. Likewise, yahoo mail also has its own Yahoo Mail app through which one can send or view emails, block someone or unsubscribe newsletter too.
