I was recently asked what it would take to do multiple file uploads from a a web page with a traditional single selection browse box. My first reaction was, you can't!! Browsers don't allow it. I was told Yahoo Mail could do it, so I took a closer look.

So, my question is do users want this functionality? Is it confusing or a really nice convenience? I must admit, I use Yahoo Mail daily and until brought to my attention, never used or knew about the multiple file selections for attachment capability.
