I can't sign in on ym.it says i typed incorrect password but its not.


You must first check if the problem is with your e-mail account. Log in on your email account using your email address and password. If your were unable, settle first the issue with yahoo mail before you can log in with yahoo messenger.

If you can access your mail account, before signing in to yahoo messenger verify for capital letters in your password. If you are sure the password is correct, then the last option is to get in the answer and question portion of yahoo messenger to send to your e-mail the correct password on your yahoo messenger account. Click Forget Password to start the verification and reset your password.

Thank you for using Fixya.

I tried to download the lastest yahoo messenger and now I can't even access the old verison. What could be my problem?


Your Yahoo! Messenger connection information may be incorrect. Follow these steps to configure your connection:
  1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
  2. Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.
  3. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.
  4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
  5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
  6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:
  1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
  2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
  3. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
  4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:
  1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
  2. Enable the "Use proxies" option.
  3. Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.
  4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
  5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
  6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect, contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or the person who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/or proxy settings are correct.

How do unlock my messenger?


So many log in tries of an Yahoo ID with wrong password causes lock.. This is a security lock for your Yahoo! ID. If you know the correct password you can unlock it by opening http://www.yahoo.com/r/m6 or http://mail.yahoo.com, for the first time type your ID correctly and type any password(if password is wrong no problem), click Sign In . in reply the same page will appear again... this time type your ID and password correctly, type the captcha verification code correctly as shown in image box and click Sign In. if your password is right your ID will be unlocked.

Thanks for being with us.

All the best.

If you are sure you have the correct password, I would start with changing your user name that you are signing in with. Sometimes yahoo seems to want the "@yahoo.com" with the user name, and sometimes it does not.

If adding or removing the "@yahoo.com" part of the user name doesn't help, go through the "forgotten user name and password" steps.

I can't signing into yahoo messenger


It may be the server is down, it's been happening a lot lately or your Yahoo! Messenger connection information may be incorrect. Yahoo! will fix it soon. To configure your connection, what you should do? Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences." Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button. The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps: Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences." Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button. If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps: Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo!

Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button. If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect, contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or the person who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/or proxy settings are correct. Hope it was helpful!
