Hi,

If I may offer another possibility.....nothing is wrong with your PC, your software, your installation, configuration, settings. It was working before.

Error Code 81003005, Pls try again a little bit later. Server maintenance? Give it a couple of hours or even overnight.

Alternately, open messenger Connection Preferences, normally would be No proxies. You can try all others and determine at which selection logging in could be accomplished.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,

Error code means your firewall is blocking it.
I think It's not yahoo, it may be your firewall settings on your own computer......

    It may also due to the following ......


    - Yahoo! servers are down for maintenance, the only fix would be to wait.



    - Your connection preferences are wrong:

    Messenger tab just above where you sign in and then click the Connection Preference option

    and i need you to look to this site...click here

    I examined your problem as you described it. It seems that you have a
    serious spyware in your system which causes the problem you described.
    I recommend you to check your PC with anti spyware tool immediately.
    Please note that standard antivirus may not solve this problem.

    Download True Sword - one of the best anti torjan and anti spyware
    tools in the Internet here (download is free):

    http://www.securitystronghold.com/true-s....exe

    Copy this link and paste it into your browser's address line,
    then press Enter. A download will start immediately. Then install
    True Sword and perform a full scan of your system.

    If you have any difficulties using the link above please go to

    www.SecurityStronghold.com

    and use True Sword link in the header of that site.
    There you will also find a description of True
    Sword and a full list of trojans, spyware, adware, keyloggers and
    other kinds of malicious programs it finds and eliminates.

    Don't hesitate contacting me if you have further questions.

When I try to change settings on my yahoo calendar I get an error message


There are many potential reasons for this issue. Have you tried a different web browser - such as Google Chrome instead of Microsoft Internet Explorer? As for the address issue, you can update the contact address once you are logged into the Yahoo calendar area. It is under settings.

I cannot send or recieve e mail/ a tech set it up for me. he sent a test e mail it came through & then when I tried it , I get error message. I am at a loss.


Using Yahoo open the yahoo mail and create you email account. Sometimes you end up in Outlook Mail in error. To fix that go to Tools at the top of your browser. Open Options, then Programs. Scroll down to "Mailto" then to the right click on the mail program and select Yahoo Mail. I use FireFox but if you use MS Internet Explorer the procedure will be similar.
Now you can access your mail on any computer by using your log in to Yahoo. Your mail is stored on a Yahoo server, not in your computer.

There was a problem signing into yahoo messenger please try again a little bit later (81003005)


Make sure you spelled your password correctly. Make sure the caps is on of off depending on your password. Try closing out yahoo messenger and restarting the application. If that does not work reboot your machine. If that does not work uninstall your messenger then reinstall it. If that does not work contact yahoo for further assistance.

Cant get or log on to yahoo games says the program is having difficuties what can i do to fix my yahoo so i can play online games through u


I've noticed that some of the older Yahoo games are no longer working. Also, Yahoo has been doing a lot of upgrades and changes lately, that cause lots of error messages. You'll probably want to try again another time, and see if the problem corrects itself.

Error81003005


See below
Hope this helps
Here's how I solve it:
1. Open your Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools > Internet Options then click the Connections tab
3.Click the LAN Settings button and a new dialog box will open
4. At the new dialog box, look for the Proxy server checkbox, if this is checked, uncheck it.
5. Then your done, click OK button for the dialog boxes.
6. Try logging in to your Yahoo Messenger account.
My solution is good only if you have set your proxy server previously in your Internet Explorer. I've noticed this behaviour since in our school, I need to set the proxy server to access the internet. But at home, I don't need to. So when I am at home, this is the normal situation I encounter when I forget to unset back the proxy settings.
On the other hand, the other way around should work. What I mean here is, if you connect to a network that has a proxy server, you need to setup the proxy settings in order for you to use their internet services. Thus, access to yahoo could be established.
[Solution #2]
One area to look also if the proxy is not the one causing the problem, you can check if you have your DNS Server address(es) set, which - in case you have changed your network, can't be accessible to the new network. Thus, it can cause this error.
So, you may unset the DNS Servers (Go to Network Properties >> General Tab >> TCP/IP Properties >> General Tab > Obtain DNS Server address automatically) and try logging in your YM.
[Solution #3]
If the above solutions does not go well, this last one might be the savior. Instead of constantly banging your heads with those re-logins and reconfigurations, you can track back your YM version and replace it with an old version instead. I did this and it works for me well. I had before a version 9 Yahoo Messenger and when I replace it with a version 8, the problem was solved. This should be your last resort if the previous won't work. Remember also to be patient. If it bugs you, don't bug down... bug up!

Today, I received the much reported 81003005 error trying to sign in with AccountA. I have tried the proxy "solution" which didn't apply to me since it was already unchecked. I checked the connection...


Is this the error we all get in MSN? I'm sorry I am tired perhaps you did state what it is specifically you're triyng ot log in to, but from what I gathered you didn't. From my recollection, that code is from MSN?

I've personally had it many times if it is the MSN error I am thinking of. I don't know of a specific fix, but if it helps or eases your mind somewhat it does go away. Usually within hours. I believe it has something to do with the server side, not your PC or settings.

I am sure someone will flame me and inform you of a better answer. That's the best I cna do I am afraid.

do you get an error message that your ir or password is not valid? DO you use yahoo messenger? If not try to sign into to messenger and vierfy your id and password work? If it doesn't work there contact yahoo staff about your login issue. Through 'forgot password' option on the sign on page for email.
