You will need to adjust your firewall settings to allow these actions before Windows will allow you to use this feature.

I cannot sign in into yahoo messenger,but i can sign in into my yahoo mail


First, go to you IE, Click on Tools, Click on Internet Options, Click on Connections, then check "Always Dial my Default Connection. Click Apply, Click OK.

When Yahoo detects that you've already signed into Yahoo Mail, it will disconnect you when you try to sign into messenger or vice versa - thus, the message that you are signed in to another computer.
To get rid of your problem simply disable chat in your mail account by clicking the smiley and following the prompts.
Yahoo remembers your settings until you change them.
Hitting the X on the Contacts page in Yahoo Messenger does Not Sign you out of Yahoo Messenger, it merely closes the contacts page. Always Click "Close & Sign Out" for your Y!M.

I hope this solution will act as an insurance upon soling this problem of yours

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! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences." Enable the "Use proxies" option. 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. 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!
