Yahoo Messenger List/Address Book

I cannot delete several of my contacts, when I try to delete them, I get the following error message: The last Address Book operation did not succeed due to a server error (Error Code: -40402). Does anyone know how to fix this? I tried going into the contact information and deleting it from there but that didn't work either. Thank You in advance.

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.

You can try again at different times, the system is most probably overloaded at that time.

SOURCE: I cannot delete several of my messenger contacts

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.

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.

Error code 40402


[Solution # 1]
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.
Error Code 40402 pops up when trying to remove a name while in your Yahoo Instant Messenger list first.

[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
