Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

IM logs me out because I'm already logged in. I'm not!

When I log into Instant Messenger, it tells me that I am being logged out of instant chat because I am already logged into another computer or device. This is untrue. I don't use other computers nor devices and can only think my I.D is being used elsewhere. This happens when I first get into Yahoo email. Maybe there is something else I should know? Do I have to change my logon info? I've only been seeing this message for a couple of months and have only been online since late last year.

    I have the same problem and changed my password immediately.  Less than 3 min after I did that....it kicked me off again.  I think it might be a bug with Yahoo.

When you sign into Yahoo Mail first, the new mail automatically signs you into yahoo messenger thru mail, so your best bet is to sign into Yahoo Messenger first, then when and if it says you have mail, click on the envelope to go to your email. It does the same thing for me but when I sign into messenger first then go to my email, I stay signed into messenger. Hope that helps you.

This is only the first time during 6 years that I am using Yahoo-Mail that I got a message telling me that "You have been disconnected from chat because you have signed into Yahoo! Messenger from...


This will happen if your chat is active on your mail page. If it loads, it will automatically sign you out of the instant messenger program that's not on your web browser.

In order to prevent this in the future, deactivate chat and mobile text on your Yahoo mail tab by setting it to unavailable. If you're permanently unavailable via the browser window, then Messenger will not log you out.

I log into my yahoo e-mail account and then within 3 seconds it kicks me out and says to log in again???


Yahoo mail has chat activated and that's why Yahoo Messanger logs you out because you cannot have two instances of it running. To fix this, on Yahoo Mail screen, under Chat & Mobile Text, select Sign out of Chat and it will show I'm Offline. In this way it won't kick you out of Yahoo Messenger anymore.

Cant login in IM of nokia 6300


your Yahoo Messenger account could only be open on 1 terminal at a time. For example, if you are already logged in on your PC and you will also logging in your Nokia6300. In either terminal you will be logged off. This also happens when you are using or browsing Yahoo Mail and will be using Yahoo Messenger at the same time.

IM keeps logging me out.


Hi,

1. Hit "run" in the start menu
2. Type "regedit"
3. Open "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger"
4. Delete the folder called MSN Messenger
5. After this MSN Messenger Live will login as normal.

or...

If you're not comfortable editing the registry, you can run this small reg. file which does the same thing as posted above:
Remove Messenger Settings

Hope this helps
