I addes some contacts to my yahoo messenger list which I now would like to delete. When I try to delete them, the following message appears and I cannot delete them. "the last address book operation did not suceed due to a server error (Error Code:-40402). If I go under the contact field, I cannot delete their yahoo ID, or else I would simply change it. Does anyone know how to correct this problem

    Yeah I added a new contact and I can't edit any contact details or delete them. I saw another answer that said deleting and adding the contact again would take care of this but I can't delete them either. I can't even change contact details on contacts I have had for years in previous versions of messenger.

Error 100 yahoo messenger


Click on your Compose button (just below the YAHOO! in the upper left-hand corner of the page). This takes you to your Contacts list. Highlight the name you want to delete & click the Delete symbol/word at the top of the Contacts list. I've done this many times. Best wishes.

I want to delete my id from others yahoo messenger list. Please help!


unfortunately you can't do that unless you know their account and manually doing it. Instead, I suggest you to create a new account. That way you can manage who to add and not add the person on your yahoo list. To create another account just click here https://edit.yahoo.com/registration?.src=fpctx&.intl=us&.done=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F

I cannot delete several of my messenger contacts even though i deleted from my mail address book. when I try to delete them, I get the following error message: The last Address Book operation did not...


Seems Error Code 40402 pops up when trying to remove them while in your Yahoo Instant Messenger list first.

Glitches and Updates!!! Here's a work around though.
You will need to go to your Yahoo Email Account and delete the contact's name there first.
1. Click Contacts from your Email page to open your list of Contacts.
2. Go to the one you wish to remove and check the box next to it.
3. Go to the top of the list and click the Delete button.

Go to Yahoo Instant Messenger, right click the name and select Delete from the drop down menu.

If I delete a yahoo mesanger contact, does it automatically delete my icon from their list to let them know that they have been deleted?


No, because when you add a contact from yahoo messenger, it acts like a phone book, so if you delete one of your contacts the only thing that will disappear is that contact information that you have deleted. They will not know when you have deleted them. i have tried and tested it.

Hope i can help you out with this
Thank you :)

I'm trying to edit my own contact details.

You will need to go to your Yahoo! Email Account and delete the contact's name there first.

1. Click Contacts from in the toolboxt to open.
2. Go to the contact you wish to remove and click the box next to it.
3. Go to the top of the list and click the Delete button.

Go to Messenger. When your list of Contacts opens, right click next to the name you wish to remove and select Delete from the drop down menu. The contact will be removed here also.

[Solution # 2]
Quit the program, then delete the contents of the “Cache”-folder located here:
c:/program files/Yahoo/Messenger/Cache


That usually solves a lot of problems, that occur all of a sudden. Try that and see if it works

[Solution # 3]
most probably a registry error - if you do not have a registry cleaner try downloading the free version of ccleaner from filehippo
once its downloaded select 'registry' from toolbar on left hand side and run 'scan for issues' followed by 'fix selected errors' if errors are detected
use microsoft 'one care' for further check


Hope they could help you
Good luck

Yahoo Messenger List/Address Book


I have since found out that you have to actually go into your contacts under yahoo mail and delete them from that list, then it deletes them from your messenger. Found this solution on another website. Hope this helps anyone else who is having that problem.

Friends' yahoo messenger ID blocked.Can't add it to my msgr list!


I have used Zak's nobuddy before - it has been updated to work with yahoo's newest protocols.

Test: (A) I have 2 yahoo ID's - I added each to the other:
(B) I use Yahoo Messenger version 9.0.0.2162
(C) I was invisible mode at all times on each ID

1 I then got this zak nobuddy to remove one from the other:
2 It worked (although it left no message - I was simply gone).
3 I then performed the normal add request - this too worked fine and I was added again as soon as ID2 accepted.

You say it's blocked from your contact list:
I would check from messengers menu bar
messenger/ preferences/ ignore list and see if your friends ID is in there.
