Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Yahoo IM I am concerned about something. I just set up yahoo IM yesterday and my user name is chumpchange2010. When I was talking with another person I had noticed that my personal name would show up when we exchanged messages. Since that time I have been able to change that to my user name as well. What I am concerned about is I was talking with user name lindaloretta28 she told me she is in nigeria and she needed me to send her money. She now has my full name and she knows what city I live in. Do I have anything to worry about? Obviously I am not going to send her any money. Please email me a response at chumpchange Thank you

How to talk to my friends using the webcam?

Make sure you're using the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. Secondly, you'll see a clickable option named "Start My Webcam." After that, it will begin loading your webcam. Next, you'll see a little camera icon that appears in the chat window when you're talking with your friend(s). Click on the contact from your contact list, then click "Invite to View My Webcam." This will open a new IM window with your webcam live. Be sure to click "View Webcam" link while talking to others in the IM so you can see their webcams!

*Tip: You can use the "Super Webcam" mode to receive high quality video and imagery feed in your webcam chat!

Hope this helps!

When I click on my Yahoo Messenger it brings up all my addresses. When I click on the address to whom I want to talk to it brings up call or e-mail. I do not want either one. I want window to pop up where...

Normally this means that the person you want to contact does not have Yahoo IM .
If someone has Yahoo IM you will just see their name and a dot by the side of them which will be either white ( offline) or Yellow ( online) to the right of their name there will be a down arrow where you will be able to select either to message them, Video call, or Voice call them.
Hope this helps

Am unable to participate in Yahoo messenger chat. I see my friends on-line. They send me an invitation to chat but I am frozen. I cannot type anything back.Just downloaded it yesterday. Everything else...

I would if it was me save the list of your contacts by Yahoo names etc and REMOVE THE messenger program from your computer--

Try a fresh install--something may not have gone right when you did it---If you want to test if yours is working give me your IM name--I have messenger and will be able to see if yours works or not---you will be able to respond if it does not work by commenting on this solution.

I suspect either a glitch or it did not install correctly.

Cant view webcams in chat rooms

some times you 1st need an invite to view persons cam.

Try this method;
I discovered that I can view chat room webcams by clicking on the name and selecting Send an Instant Message first, then on the IM box select View Webcam under Actions. (It just doesn't work when I click on their name in the chat room list and select View Webcam from there--unless their webcam says Open Webcam)
