Question about Yahoo Messenger

Yahoo keeps logging me out

Lately whenever I'm in Yahoo messanger, it will randomly log me out. Sometimes it won't even let me back in. It's really annoying when I'm talking to someone, and I don't know if the message went through or not. Seriously this isn't just happening to me. FIX IT!

What version of yahoo messenger your using? If using beta version I suggest to download the latest version and update I believe its ver. 9 now.

check also your connection settings  go to preferences menu under Messenger main menu  select Connection tab and check if "Connect Directly To the Internet" is selected(choose this if your  computer is directly connected to internet router not thru Network or LAN or gateway)  select Via Proxy and HTTP proxy if your connecting thru LAN using Proxy server(you need to  identify your proxy IP  address if your using ver. 8 of messenger)

I cant log into my yahoo email. It keeps saying my telephone number is wrong. I have entered my correct telephone number. Now Im getting a notice thst someone may have hacked into my account, plea


If you gave him your password and your username for your email account or for your messenger account then he can log in to your account and change the password to one only he knows. If he can get into your email he can read all your old emails. If you use the same password for multiple accounts, he can keep guessing at what accounts you might have and try the password. Even if you have accounts that don't use the same password but use your email address to log into, he can try to log into those with your email address and say he doesn't remember your password and they'll email him a new one.
Sounds like you're screwed. Call your ISP (Internet service provider)

What does it say when you try to login to your Yahoo! email? Try opening it using a different web browser.

Cannot open my yahoo.mail


Hi,

This may sound absurd but you're logged into yahoo mail but was staring at the in-box for hours because you can't access your in-box or you simply can't open those emails even though you're almost there looking at email previews.

No matter how you try to open the in-box folder, you simply can't access it or you're too close to reading the email by clicking on the preview link but it just wouldn't open and all you see is a blank screen.

Generally, we access our email via yahoo's web interface or sometimes we do it from yahoo messenger window when new email alters come. Whichever way we do it, we cannot always assume that since yahoo is a large company, we definitely won't get server errors. In fact, if you happen to have used an extension from firefox that could determine web servers, I've noticed that local yahoo mails are sometimes hosted somewhere else, like for example, Singapore for some parts of Asia.

Have you ever tried accessing your yahoo mail via IM and were able to run into any of the problems stated above? Then you don't really have to uninstall or remove the messenger or clear your proxy settings in case you're using one. There glitches sometimes occur but that doesn't mean your account has been compromised. It's also cumbersome to delete your account then create a new one just to get away from this hassle.

You may try logging out then clear your cache or refresh/restart browser then logging in again. In my experience, I even switched browsers but if the problem persists, don't log out but open this link.

As you can see, it's a yahoo mobile interface but it surely works like magic although there's no way you can log out from it, simply close the browser window whenever you're done reading your emails while you still can't access your mails using the normal site.

Also, pictures are not viewable using the link, only pure texts from the email will appear.

Thanking you

Every time I try to go to Yahoo.Messanger It logs me out saying I am logged in on another device.I have but one computer?


Yahoo mail has chat activated and when you log into email it logs into Chat as well 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.

At messanger, it keeps saying "you are offline"


There could be a few reasons for this, does anyone else have your Yahoo username and password and is logging in on another device??? also, there is a messenger area on the side of some yahoo mail inboxes which can automatically log you into yahoo messenger when you check your mail, and this of course will log you out of your main yahoo messenger, but ethier way check and double check, because if its saying this there is something else logging into your messenger, Do you have Yahoo multi id?? if so it could be that - my advice keep checking all options.

My Yahoo email keeps logging me out. It happens whenever I navigate the site: ex. from composing email to sending, or from inbox to spam folder, or open email to deleting it. Some times I can't even log...


You could try cleaning the cache. Sometimes, you will be automatically logged out if you spend a lot of time on a page. Also check for any spyware.
