Why are messages with attachments going to my trash folder?

Do you have a problem with messages automatically being sent to your Yahoo trash folder when they have attachments?

A common cause for this problem is creating a filter with only a couple letters in it.

The short string of letters is likely matching the encoding of the attachment in the e-mail message.

Try removing any short word filters such as SEX, FYI, or DVD from your filters.
