Why cant other see my PM message? I have checked settings and it says to allow from anyone. Not sure why they can send me a PM but I can't send them one. I have looked all around in preferences but nothing...


Thefirst thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in InternetExplorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things thatgo wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page aboutthat: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng... 2)In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type inthe Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are usingWindows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You caneasily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose UserAccounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn UserAccount Control on or off. 3)If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you canupdate your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others,this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows andchat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleanerreginout cleaner to easily fix it

Im not sign in to yahoo.messenger?


try cleaning system and browsers junk and registry corruption with reginout, this problem will be hopefully resolved: http://www.reginout.com
also try this:
Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.
3. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
3. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Use proxies" option.
3. Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect, contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or the person who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/or proxy settings are correct.
