Is there an error message when you try or they just do not get the PDF attachment? You using Yahoo Mail Web interface?

It could be a size issue although that does not seem that large.

I agree with Dennis. It's probably Yahoo that's removing the PDF attachment. Not sure what Yahoo rules are with regard to attachments as I do not use them as ISP. You might try zipping it and see if it will go through that way.

Any particular reason why? Their email service is fantastic, generous and well supported. Chrome is a great browser as well.

Yahoo has a limit of 25MB so you should be okay. Have you tried a different email service?

You can use both. I use Gmail with Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and with a POP email client and have never had one issue.

Quick Note, I joined Gmail when it was still beta. I have never had one issue and never regretted using it.
