Cannot log in to yahoo messenger


First, make sure that the YM is working correctly.

Second, be sure that you are using the correct user name and password. Your Yahoo Mail user name and password is also your Messenger user name and password.

Example:

john.smith@yahoo.com (email address)
john.smith (should be the user name without @yahoo.com)
Then type your Yahoo password.

If same problem occur, try to uninstall and reinstall the Yahoo Messenger.

Thank you and good luck!

Yahoo messenger not logging in


You have to make sure that your user name and password is correct.

Example: your complete email is ravi_murthy@yahoo.com.
- Your user name should be ravi_murthy only and without "@yahoo.com".
- The password is a case sensitive, be sure to type in the correct password.

If same problem occur, try to access your Yahoo Mail to verify the user name and password. If its verified correct, uninstall and reinstall the Yahoo Messenger, and get the latest version.

Thank you and good luck!

Yahoo messenger issue


It might be that someone is trying to log in as your user name. When they try about 6-8 different passwords without any luck, Yahoo locks the account automatically for 24 hours to protect your account.
Try uninstalling yahoo messenger v.9 and install a previous version instead, or visit the yahoo help and support center: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/helpcentral/

2) Run ccleaner daily

3) Log in here to reset cookies

4) Set browser to default - even if you only have one (don't ask !!)
5) User name - use full address if you have email address other than Yahoo . Otherwise drop "@yahoo.com"
