    Whether you have a free Yahoo! Mail account or a Mail Plus account, you can send and receive emails up to 25MB in size. Unfortunately, we are unable to increase this.

    This means that the total encoded size of the email message you're sending cannot exceed 25MB. Attachments sent with emails have to be encoded into a format other email programs can read. This encoding adds about 33% to the original size of the attachment. So a 1.5MB attachment will turn into a 2MB attachment after encoding.

    I recommend backing up your images to a thumbdrive, SD card, or a writable DVD. Anyone of those options would be far better than trying to store your photos in an email account. You might also want to consider using Dropbox, which will let you sync about 2 gigabytes worth of files for free.
