    Cannot log in to Yahoo IM. Had upgraded to ver. 9. Could not sign on. Have uninstalled and installed older version of IM...still cannot sign in. I am now getting the error code 81003005. Tells me it is my firewall. Same firewall not problem before. Now I have to use the Yahoo webmessenger. Don't like it at all.

    How do I fix my sign in? Have changed password several times.

Hope this helps
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!

There was a problem signing into yahoo messenger please try again a little bit later (81003005)


Make sure you spelled your password correctly. Make sure the caps is on of off depending on your password. Try closing out yahoo messenger and restarting the application. If that does not work reboot your machine. If that does not work uninstall your messenger then reinstall it. If that does not work contact yahoo for further assistance.

Today, I received the much reported 81003005 error trying to sign in with AccountA. I have tried the proxy "solution" which didn't apply to me since it was already unchecked. I checked the connection...


Is this the error we all get in MSN? I'm sorry I am tired perhaps you did state what it is specifically you're triyng ot log in to, but from what I gathered you didn't. From my recollection, that code is from MSN?

I've personally had it many times if it is the MSN error I am thinking of. I don't know of a specific fix, but if it helps or eases your mind somewhat it does go away. Usually within hours. I believe it has something to do with the server side, not your PC or settings.

I am sure someone will flame me and inform you of a better answer. That's the best I cna do I am afraid.

I am having a problem logging into my yahoo account...It hasnt let me log into it for 5 days...What can i do ???


do you get an error message that your ir or password is not valid? DO you use yahoo messenger? If not try to sign into to messenger and vierfy your id and password work? If it doesn't work there contact yahoo staff about your login issue. Through 'forgot password' option on the sign on page for email.
