I am not on yahoo at all, all of my emails come directly from dslextreme.com, I have not chat on or anything. It just automatically kicks me off to go directly to the Google sign in page and then sends me...


Try installing a spyware app to remove anything that may be controlling your browser. If that doesn't work try to contact your internet service provider to see if they have software to go straight to your email.

I log into my yahoo e-mail account and then within 3 seconds it kicks me out and says to log in again???


Yahoo mail has chat activated and that's why Yahoo Messanger logs you out because you cannot have two instances of it running. To fix this, on Yahoo Mail screen, under Chat & Mobile Text, select Sign out of Chat and it will show I'm Offline. In this way it won't kick you out of Yahoo Messenger anymore.

Hi, you can uninstall/ reinstall the yahoo messenger instead of other people getting a sign on error message. I have experienced that same problem years back and I guarantee that once you change your mail ID, other people cannot access yahoo messenger on your computer...

I keep getting a message that says i have sign out of messenger


"You have been signed out out of chat because you have signed in on another device" ?

Hi,
Since Messenger Version 9 was launched, Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time.
For example, Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Webmessenger, Yahoo Mail, your mobile phone, Ipod, or other computers etc. etc.
Yahoo classifies all these programs as "Different devices or locations". Navigating from one to the other will close one program and you may get the notification message referred to above..
Note. Hitting the X on the Contacts page in Yahoo Messenger does not sign you out of Yahoo Messenger, it merely closes the contacts page. Like WLM you have to close the program by right-clicking the icon in the system tray and selecting 'Exit'
You can have Yahoo Mail and Messenger ( or any other program ) open at the same time as long as your status is "Offline" in Yahoo Mail. Use the drop-box next to your name and "Sign out of chat"
Your online contacts will vacate the inbox until you make yourself "Available" again

Hi i log into yahoo messenger get kicked out as soon as i send or reaceve a instant message.Never happend till i updated to messenger 10.


Hey, try changing your password to something which no one will ever be able to figure out, after logging on from a different machine ...

also, after doing that, go to yahoo mail and sign out of chat from there, and then get back to messenger and check ...

see whether yahoo mail has been blocked by your firewall, if yes, unblock it ...

there might be a trojan in your computer as well, if so, use a good antivirus like kaspersky, bit defender, nod32 etc...

I went into yahoo messenger country music chatroom 34 and i got like 60 im's and it froze my screen and now my password doesnt work and its locked and wont let me back in


That is called bot....you were boted when you were in chat room...advance user uses this system to kick out the user from chat room..this type of software known as anti-yahoo software....nothing to worry ...just sign in on your yahoo messenger click on Messenger>Preferences or Ctrl+Shift+P Now click on Ignore List, from here select Ignore anyone who is not in my yahoo contacts or Alt+I, it will block any incoming unknown bot. To save yourself from bot and net DC/Sign out ... use yahoo chat client like Yahelite , Yazak , Ysupra etc. ... To unlock your ID go here... http://www.yahoo.com/r/m6 or http://mail.yahoo.com first time put your ID and password & press sign in...the login page will appear again ....put ID, password & Captcha word correctly this time.... your ID will be unlocked now....hope my suggestion helps you..have a good day

Can't stay signed-in to YM, always getting disconnected


You can only have one yahoo "Instant message capable" program open at one time. So if you move from Messenger to mail or chat you will get this message. If you want to have Yahoo Mail open with another Yahoo IM program you will have to set your status to "offline" in MAIL by using the dropbox next to your name ( all new mail) select "sign out of chat"
In Classic mail its located in the Inbox. Your online chat contacts will vacate the inbox until you make yourself "Available" again.
Yahoo classifies - Messenger - Mail - webmessenger - my yahoo - mobile phones - computers etc etc as different computers or devices - hence the confusion.

I get kicked out occaisoanlly


too many reasons for that issue

either someone else is using your yahoo address and that would show a message saying you are logged in another computer.

or someone is trying to BOT you by using a Bot program to kick you out of yahoo.

or maybe the internet connection is low and that might be the reason.

for the first reason you can change the password
for the second reason you can install a tunnel program to protect you from Bots.
the third reason you will need to check the internet connection and make sure its running without any problems.

cheers
