    This problem has been going on for a few days. Yahoo! came up for a short period of time yesterday but it is still down now. I tried manually typing in the address. It still did not work. What is the situation and how long before Yahoo! is back up?

    Having composed my e-mail, I can neither send nor save to draft - I reported the problem as Error 2 (as instructed) and Yahoo replied that the fault has been fixed - NO IT HAS NOT, Yahoo !!! That was 18 hours ago and it still does not work. They do not deserve our money or support.

If you have Messenger 10 you will have the sign in troubleshooting facility to narrow down the possibilities.
If you have AVG free edition, there is a known conflict and you will have to contact AVG support for assistance ( Try signing in with AVG disabled to check this out )

Error 81003005

[Solution #1] 
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!
