Attach files to a message

Upload from a computer

  2. Select the files you want on your PC and then click Open.
Attention. If you cannot attach several files at the same time, make sure you have the latest Adobe Flash Player version installed. For more details, see I can't attach a file.

If you have accidentally attached the wrong file, simply click Delete.

Note. If the size of attachments exceeds 25 MB, files will be automatically uploaded to your Yandex.Disk (Mail attachments → Sent as links to Disk).

Attach from Yandex.Disk

  1. Click below the text box.
  2. Select a file or folder and then click Attach.

The recipient will receive a message with links to download the attachments. The download links to the attachments will only be available to users who participate in the conversation.

Note. The maximum file size uploaded to Disk is 10 GB. The number of attachments is not limited.

Many mail services reject attachments over 10 MB. If you are not sure that your recipient can receive such an attachment, send it in parts (in several messages) or add the required files to your message through Yandex.Disk.

Add from mail attachments

All files that you sent or received are saved to your Yandex.Disk in the Mail attachments folder.

To attach them to an email:

  1. Click below the text box.
  2. Select the required file and click Attach.

View attachments

Certain types of attachments can be opened directly in Yandex.Mail web interface without using additional applications. The following file types are supported:

  • Archives: ZIP, RAR, TAR.

If the email contains an attachment, then it will display as a thumbnail or icon in the email list. To hide attachment thumbnails, open Settings  → Other and disable the show attachments in message list option.

Note. If several files are attached to the email, then the files will be downloaded as a ZIP archive.

You can view attachments, save them to Yandex.Disk, and download them from your email:

Viewing documents and archives

The attached images are displayed as thumbnails. To open an image in the view mode, simply left-click its thumbnail.

To exit view mode, click in the upper right corner, or press Esc.

I can't attach a file

Update the page by clicking Ctrl+F5 and try to attach the file again. If the problem persists, clear your browser cache and delete all cookies before trying again.

Yandex.Mail may not work properly due to certain browser extensions or add-ons. You can temporarily disable them to determine if this is the case. If ad blockers or antivirus extensions are causing problems with Yandex.Mail, then you can add the Mail page to the list of exceptions for that particular extension.
