    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.

    I was going to suggest Google Mail as I have never had issues with it and Attachments even some pretty decent size.

    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.
