◘ Error 999 IS a Ban ... a censor tool, used by Yahoo

Help-link:- (( )

◘ You can do a few things if you are impatient ( re cleanup computer, dump temp files etc) but this will not help error 999 the best option if you have a dynamic IP is to do a full "flick of the switch", and when you power back up you will come back with a new IP, ( with some turn off comp for 8 hours), but usually you get a new IP when you power up straight after the shutdown, you can continue posting the link under the new IP. 

◘ Best quick fix >>>> login to your Yahoo! mail via an international server... and access your mail / ya / 360 /games from there by clicking the mail icon, stay within that browser. That, is the best temp fix for the system

◘ Also reply to Yahoo using the link they give you in that Error 999 page. I did it once or twice and I was free from the Error. It has been said that answering, voting too quickly may cause that Error. So give some gap of 2-3 mins between any two Questions you answer.

Almost Always I got this problem solved by following the above suggestions

I've been getting error message #999 for over 3 hours now. I did the virus & spywhere scan and tried on another computer wit a different ISP. It does not help. I'm sure it is a Yahoo issue. How can I...

This error message is basically a message that says they don't know what the problem is. I am certain that the Error 999 is caused by Yahoo's bandwidth limiting for some reason. Here are a few possible work arounds that may or may not work.
I've also heard that yahoo is blocking particular IP addresses for some sort of abuse.
1. If you're using a proxy, stop.
2. If you're not, download a product like Hotspot Shield which will assign you a new IP then turn it off if you get in.
3. Try accessing through yahoo messenger if you have it.
4. If you use In Private Browsing,or a web accelerator, stop.
5. If you're using the firefox plugin SEOquake, stop.
6. Try accessing through
It's not much but you might be able to read your mail.
My personal thought is that they use it to cool off with, just that simple, and if it is Yahoo you can't do anything but wait anyway. My guess is it will clear up soon enough if it's not a recurring problem for you.
Good luck

Error 999

Unfortunately your IP address has been banned by yahoo. Thats why you won't be able to open your yahoo mail. There are only 3 options available to you.
1. Login from another PC whose IP address is different
2. Change the IP address of your PC
3. Wait for few days till yahoo removes ban from your IP

Error 999 is a sign that Yahoo's defense is in effect.

"This error appears to be caused by some sort of bandwidth limiting system that Yahoo has put in place on their servers. Once you have exceeded your allotted bandwidth for a specific period of time Yahoo gives you this Error 999 message and doesn't allow you to access the service."

You can access your email here for now until Yahoo gets all the bugsout. They have been upgrading their servers lately, causing problemsfor all of us. Or: It's basic, but it works. I used it last night when they were messing around with my compose screen.

Getting error message 999 when trying to go to my mail

The most common reason for receiving Yahoo Error 999 is due to some sort of bandwidth limiting system that Yahoo has put in place on their servers. Once you have exceeded your allotted bandwidth for a specific period of time Yahoo gives you this Error 999 message and doesn't allow you to access the service. People have primarily reported receiving this error when they try to access Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Groups, but other Yahoo services may also be affected.
