    My friend Kurt will send a message to me, and it will usually be a smiley face or whatever, or hey, and i type something back, and i guess he doesnt get it b/c he doesnt type back and then he signs out.

Call Yahoo and bombard them with questions about this problem. Maybe if enough pressure Is put on them they will get off their fat ***** and fix something.

SOURCE: Problem in sending message from yahoo messenger

It will be that the receipient hasnt opened the email maeesage if you have receipt of message facility active, or that the email address you have is wrong or typed in incorrectly. Either way, if the message hasnt reached the receipient's mail server then you wil get an error message saying this.

I am receiving my friends messages but she's not receiving mine


Use Facebook, Twitter, Gmail Chat. For whatever reason you're using Yahoo messenger, if you're too attached to it to use something else, try disconnecting and reconnecting, or send a different type of message, or try to connect with a video chat or phone call through Yahoo.

Step by step on how to use the messenger


To use Yahoo Messenger, you first need to download it. Here is the link to the latest version which is Yahoo Messenger 10:

http://messenger.yahoo.com/platform/win

If you want to use Chat Rooms, these are available on the US version of Yahoo Messenger 10. Just click on the US flag at the bottom of the download page.

Once downloaded, this is how you can add your contacts and friends:

Click on "Contacts" in the top of the "Messenger" window pane.

Click on "Add a Contact".

You will then see two options. Either you can add somebody from their Messenger ID or email address or you can choose a contact from your address book.

For each contact you add, click on "Next" to take you through the process. An invitation will then be sent to each one you have added. Their names will appear on your Messenger List with a message "Add Request Pending". This message will disappear when the invitation is accepted.

TO IM SOMEONE:

You right click on the contact that you want to IM and then click on " Instant Message". Another box will open up for you to type your message in. When you have finished typing your message, hit the "Send" button on the right of the box you are typing in.

If the person is showing as "online", he will get the message straight away. If the person if "offline", he will receive the message as soon as he signs into Yahoo Messenger.

To use email chat, you need to sign yourself in on your email page. Next to your username, you will see a status which may be set to "Offline" at the moment. Click on it and change your status to "Available".

After I type the first sentence and press send and try to type a 2nd sentence a pop up says your friend must reply to your messege b4 you can send any more messeges. This started yesterday. How do I stop...


Simply because he/she is offline & using " i'm on mobile " (usually stated under the user's icon), which means he/she will not receive any messages through PC/laptop but via mobile phone. Still, you can send them messages but in very limited ways or tries. In this case, it is normal. So, don't worry, nothing went wrong, you just have to wait until he/she is back online.
**NOTES: Remember, when using " i'm on mobile " or replying chats via mobile phones, credits will be deducted from your mobile account.

Whenever any of my friends sends me offline messsages or even online ones, I don't receive them. All of my friends say we see you're online and we keep sending you messages but you don't anwer or reply .....


The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update 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 and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleaner reginout cleaner to easily fix it

Actually when i type messages in yahoo messenger it was seen and soon after i hit enter the text was not in the box and it appears blank when received messages also.


hi pravin, i am happy to assist you

Open Messenger and click Messenger on the toolbar, scroll to Preferences, click, scroll to Messages, click.

In the second box, Pressing Enter in a message window, fill in the box next to "Sends the message".

Click Apply, then OK and immediately reboot your computer. When you reopen and go to your Messenger, Enter will now be sending your messages.

Good luck!
