Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

I am trying to view someone's Yahoo profile and it is set to private. When I contacted him, he didn't know anything about it and was wondering why nobody was contacting him! Anyway, we are trying to figure out how to either reset his profile so people can view it, and how I can set mine to private! What do we do?

How to change my primary profile name?


Yahoo has made major changes to their profile system. There is now only a single profile even if you have multiple aliases. You can choose to link the aliases to the profile or not. The complete details can be found here.

I am not able to view my sent messages in Yahoo Messenger and also not able to view others messeges sent to me. pls slove this problem


To do this, you have to set it to save your messages under Preferences. First, go to the main Yahoo window, the one where you see all of your contacts and click on Messenger. Look through the list until you see Preferences. Click on Preferences and look under the category list for Archive. You have three options there, to save all messages that you send and receive, to save them but to delete them upon exiting the program, or to not save them. The first option is the one to choose if you are wanting to save ALL of the messages you have sent and received from your contacts. Remember to hit the "OK" button when you've finished making your changes.
If you are just wanting to see the most recent messages you've had with someone, open up a chat window, and without typing anything to them, click the F3 button that is at the top of your keyboard. It won't show your entire conversation history, but it will show a fair amount of your most recent conversation. If you're wanting to know what date and time the conversation took place, click the F2 key, also at the top of the keyboard. You can use that key at any time during a conversation to turn timestamps on or off.
There is no way to retrieve past conversations, unfortunately, but if you choose to save messages to archive, you'll be able to view conversations at any time you wish.
I hope this helps you.

Please don't think of that because that account is not yours and when you want to hack someone account is a criminal act.Sure is an infringement of private policy.

I downloaded the latest version of messanger but when i sign in


maybe there has to be a problem with your application. Try reinstalling it with a fresh and corrupt free installer. Then try to import contact from the yahoo website, not from the application..

After that, you should do a reboot. and check if the application is working,

Pm me if the problem still continues.
I hope this works..
Thank you.. :)

How to set the privacy settings on a Yahoo profile?


Yahoo used to hold profiles at members.yahoo.com but now all the profiles have been redone. I've had yahoo for like a decade now and was not aware that my profile was gone. He's not lying to you he just hasn't been made aware and set his new profile up yet. Inform him that he needs to do so if you're going to be able to view it.
