    I have YIM v9.0.0.2136, I always get the 81003005 error. Even when I uninstall and reinstall. All versions of messenger before 9, no prob, but since upgrading to 9, i do not connect 80% of the time.

  • letterhead28 Mar 04, 2009

    I have the latest version ( and all I have had are problems on my account since I installed it. My fiances account works but I can't sign in to any Yahoo! services at all. So none of the solutions seem to work for me. My brother keeps telling me to get hotmail. It looks like I'll have to now but I lose all my emails and contacts. I've had Yahoo for almost 10 years with no problems but I now hate it. Bugger this.

  • Anonymous Mar 05, 2009

    The newer version doesnt help the problem. Same issue occurs. Uninstalled, reinstalled, doesnt help either.

  • eric_Dope Mar 09, 2009

    All of you are right. I can't log on about 80-90% of the time. Should I find an earlier version do download and use and will this fix the problem?

  • Anonymous Mar 20, 2009

    "Bounty72", Your solution doesn't help. Erroe message 81003005 isn't about your firewall, that is a different type of message. I disabled my firewall to log in and it still gave me the error message 81003005. I agree with everyone, this 9.0 version of Messenger is horrible. I can hardly ever sign in. Does anyone have to problem of Messenger just shutting down or Messenger logging you out for no reason? I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and I still have all the same problems. Another question, does anyone have the problem with messenger saving a different password under your ID? On numerous occassions I put in my ID and password and click " remember my ID and password". No matter how many times I do this it messes up. It will save my ID, but it puts in a different password. I only use my personal laptop, so no one else is logging in onto yahoo on my computer.

  • Anonymous Mar 28, 2009

    I don't believe it is firewall problems because of me. My friend and I are using the same internet (because we live in the same house) and hers is working, while mine isn't.
    I don't have a firewall on my computer.
    And I have the latest YIM version.

    First, I got the problem with error 81003005. After I change the server proxy to HTTP Proxy from the Messenger Preference, it still can't login, and the problem is 81003005....

Set your firewall settings allowing yahoo messenger on the exceptions, and then go to control panel+network&internet connection+internet options+connections then click the LAN settings, uncheck the proxy server and check the automatic detect settings...good luck!

Error code means your firewall is blocking it. It's not yahoo, it's your firewall settings on your own computer

I found this answer on a website

to verify this try disabling your firewall and signing in.......if it works go into whatever firewall you are using and set it to allow Yahoo Messenger......hope this helps and if it does please rate :) ty

Download and run ccleaner

Copy Yahoo message Archives to CD if you wish to retain them.

Download Revo uninstall tool

Close all programs - uninstall Yahoo Messenger using Revo in "Advanced" Mode - after Revo has run the Yahoo uninstall software, it will scan the registry and C drive for left-over fragments. Delete all the files it finds and check all the bold items from the registry scan, and delete them

Restart your computer

Errror 81003005 wont let me sign in to yahoomessneger

ok, in my case i remembered I tried using a proxy on internet explorer and forgot to put it off, so the proxy connection was still on even though the proxy was dead.

It now a proven fact to me that internet explore settings are linked to yahoo mess!
so make sure your internet explorer is working ok without proxy:

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.

good luck =)
