put photos on your computer unless you choose to download them. Have you delete the mail in question?
I am using Windows 7+Yahoo Mail. At the very bottom left, next to the area where you create a Yahoo email, there is a 'button' which displays all the photos which have been attached to prior emails.
Clicking on a photo gives a removal option. I have tried this, the photo temporarily deletes, but does not go to the recycle bin as it should.
When I go back to the old email photos, it is back again and not removed. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly, or this isn't the proper way to remove these hundreds of photos that have been building up for a few years.
I hope someone can help me with this problem! Thanks!
