Perhaps your account's ID has already been signing in into other medium of chats, per say Yahoo! Mail Chat? Sometimes when you open up Yahoo! Mail, it will automatically signing you into YMC (Yahoo! Mail Chat), unless it is turn off from the mail, the messenger will never interact with the same ID. Here's the link on how-to sign out from mail chat: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/chat/chat-05.html

Why does yahoo messenger keep on signing out , every ten or less it will sign out? Is that because of slow connection, anti virus or anything. Please help me.


Hello,

That can happen because of these reasons-

1-Slow connection

2-Some one is booting you (booting is a kind of hacking in which one can disconnect someone's yahoo messenger)

You can try chatting from yahoo mail or download some chat client like ysupra.Ysupra is free and you can download it by searching its website on google.Ysupra is unbootable and its very very reliable

I keep getting a message that says i have sign out of messenger


"You have been signed out out of chat because you have signed in on another device" ?

Hi,
Since Messenger Version 9 was launched, Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time.
For example, Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Webmessenger, Yahoo Mail, your mobile phone, Ipod, or other computers etc. etc.
Yahoo classifies all these programs as "Different devices or locations". Navigating from one to the other will close one program and you may get the notification message referred to above..
Note. Hitting the X on the Contacts page in Yahoo Messenger does not sign you out of Yahoo Messenger, it merely closes the contacts page. Like WLM you have to close the program by right-clicking the icon in the system tray and selecting 'Exit'
You can have Yahoo Mail and Messenger ( or any other program ) open at the same time as long as your status is "Offline" in Yahoo Mail. Use the drop-box next to your name and "Sign out of chat"
Your online contacts will vacate the inbox until you make yourself "Available" again

I cant get in chatroom, i doesnt create room list


Hi,

To make a chat room:-
Click on Action, scroll down to Invite a Conference.. and chose any of your friends to chat..

In general:

Yahoo! chat has been problematic for most everyone who tries to enter rooms over the last year .
Billions of Yahoo! website users from all over the world who love to chat,try to enter into the chat room as it's free,so it's server is always busy and not supposed to get you in immediately you ask for it, wait,have patience and you'll have your request accepted.

You might need to first check some settings on your PC.
In your Messenger window:
1. Click on Messenger.
2. Click on Preferances.
3. Click on General.
4. Check box says: "Open web links in new browser window."
5. Check box that says: "Automatically sign me in when I click on a Yahoo link in Messenger."
6,.) Click on Apply.
7.) Click on OK.

If that does not work, you might also need to check these settings:
1.) On your Internet Exploer toolbar, click on tools.
2.) Click on Internet Options.
3.) Click tab that says Programs.
4.) Near the bottom Where it says Default Web Browser, make sure Internet Explorer IS the default web browser.
5.) Click on Apply.
6.) Click on OK.

When the chat room loads wait about 3-5 minutes before clicking "Enter" , that works well for me . Otherwise just keep trying over and over and over usually takes alot of tries . Most likely your giving up too easily . Once you get into the room add it to your favorite rooms , then instead of having to wait for the room list to come up use "Join chat room" >> "Favorites" . Sometimes that works faster .

Also if you are not 18 it wont let you in...Find out in here

Hope this helped

Can't stay signed-in to YM, always getting disconnected


You can only have one yahoo "Instant message capable" program open at one time. So if you move from Messenger to mail or chat you will get this message. If you want to have Yahoo Mail open with another Yahoo IM program you will have to set your status to "offline" in MAIL by using the dropbox next to your name ( all new mail) select "sign out of chat"
In Classic mail its located in the Inbox. Your online chat contacts will vacate the inbox until you make yourself "Available" again.
Yahoo classifies - Messenger - Mail - webmessenger - my yahoo - mobile phones - computers etc etc as different computers or devices - hence the confusion.

Hi waynemcginty,
You can actually download the latest yahoo messenger version and then login to the messenger using a valid yahoo id. To check if your yahoo id is valid, try using it in a mail.yahoo.com page and if it works there, it will work in yahoo messenger too.
