When I go to show I am "available" for chat while in Yahoo mail I get an error message saying I need to upgrade to Adobe flash 9.0 which I have done repeatedly with no positive results, still get the same error message. What do I need to do to be able to engage in Yahoo chat sessions while in Yahoo mail?

Re: Opening chat in Yahoo Mail
First you need to close the Yahoo messenger. As if login with it then the webpage of Yahoo will show you offline for chat..
Otherwise just login in Yahoo messenger and to any contact, double click on contact and find if you are able to chat with it then everything is OK.
Let me know in either case, we will resolve the issue ASAP.

Are you using yahoo mail and yahoo messenger account at the same time? Please remember that when you sign in at yahoo messenger.... you will be log out when you try to sign in to your yahoo email...that is because the chat is available in your yahoo mail account. Please disable your chat option by making it OFFLINE.
I hope that is the answer you need to solve your problem.

You need to disable the Chat. In the top-left of the Yahoo Mail page, click the word between your Yahoo! ID and Sign Out (it'll be either Available, Busy, or Invisible). From the menu that appears, select Sign out of Chat to disable chat from within Yahoo! Mail. Your Contacts list disappears and your chat status is set to Offline.
After opening your mail link, look just to the top left of the page where you see Yahoo Mail and "Hi (your name). To the right of that you will see a "Smilely" and "Available". Drop the window and select "Invisible" and you are all set.
Yahoo is still having some problems at the moment. Suggested cures range from Update Adobe Flash Player and Java script to clear IE7 cache, cookies, and browsing history. Different things seem to work for different people. It's causing attachments to not show, 999 errors where it won't let you do a particular action and some people cannot send receive delete or move mail. It's not just Vista either it's happening to some of us on XP. If all else fails go back to classic mail via this link. http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/dc/optout?s... click yes when asked do you want to opt out.
