Problems with log in to Yahoo Messenger


Hello. You can probably fix this condition by following these steps:

  1. Click on the gear icon in the upper-right of the IE window
  2. Click on Internet Options
  3. Click on the Advanced tab
  4. In the Settings window, scroll all the way down to "Use TLS 1.0" and make sure that is checked.
  5. Click Apply, then OK.
That should fix it for you. This is due to a recent change in how Yahoo handles login requests.

I hope this is helpful.

Cannot open yahoo messanger ang yahoo mail


Hello!

That is a problem with your Yahoo Mail password.
You have to reset it, in order for you to gain access with your yahoo mail account and yahoo messenger account.

To reset your password go to
https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot?stage=fe100&src=ym&intl=us&done=http://mail.yahoo.com&partner=

Enter your Yahoo mail id and type in the box the code shown, before hitting the next button. It will ask you your secret answer to secret questions. At the end of it, your password will be reset and gain access with your yahoo mail account.

Once you can log in with your yahoo mail account using your new password, try to log in at yahoo messenger and you can access it.

I forgot my password-liliana_creciunescu@yahoo.com


If you go to your yahoo mail log in screen you will see a "forgot password" link, click on that and answer the questions that it asks. If you answer everything correctly it will let you reset your password. Sorry, that we can not be more of help. We do not have access to your yahoo account and can not recover it ourselves.

I cannot get into my yahoo messenger


First, verify the user name and password if it's correct by accessing your Yahoo Mail.

If the user name and password is verified correct, try accessing the Yahoo Messager. If same problem occur, you need to uninstall/re-install the YM and see if that would work.

Good luck and have a great day!

Install older version of yahoo messenger..
And let me tell your one thing that, when to try to login to your yahoo account on yahoo messenger, your internet connection must be responding. This you can ensure by keeping your server busy(opening websites).
The problem you are telling might be caused when you are trying to login to yahoo account through yahoo messenger and yahoo mail.
I recommend you that you open yahoo account through yahoo mail(only if you are unable to sign in to yahoo account through yahoo messenger.)
yahoo mail now-a-days is providing yahoo chat service when you sign in your yahoo account on yahoo mail.
at left side of your mail box you can see yahoo mini messenger.

THANK YOU for contacting Fixya.com

Unable to process request at this time -- error 999.


Error 999 on Yahoo! products is an error to say that, well, there is an error! This error code, Error 999, does not stand for any specific error and is more or less a code for any Yahoo! error.

However, this message is generally shown for when Yahoo! limits the bandwidth usage of a person on Yahoo! software for some reason.
This message can be shown when many things are pressed or done through Yahoo! software, as a way to prevent misuse and abuse.

The easiest way to solve this issue is to wait some time and try again later. This should be only a temporary error message, and things should be back to normal after some time.
