Howdy! Couldn't find the data anywhere in the Yahoo tutorials....
On Yahoo Messenger there is a status category with multiple choice options to let people know if you are available or out or what. One can also create your own status message, eg: "Gone fishing", "Walking the dog", etc.
My question is, how does on DELETE the status message one created but no longer wishes to use?
Right click doesn't operate on the status category...

As its name implies, Yahoo Messenger allows you to exchange instant messages with other Yahoo users. But the software's capabilities extend far beyond one-on-one text conversations. You can use Yahoo Messenger to participate in chat rooms, share photos, make telephone calls, video chat, play games and more. When you experience problems accessing your Yahoo Messenger account, you may receive a message that it has been locked.
Locked Accounts Yahoo places locks on Messenger accounts as a security precaution. The locks take effect when there are multiple, failed attempts to access a user's Yahoo account. Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked. b> Unlocking Accounts b> To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password. When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page. Leave your My Yahoo page open. Sign into Yahoo Messenger for the Web, then try to sign into Yahoo Messenger. If you are unsuccessful, contact customer care. b> Current Versions b> "Account locked" messages aren't the only sign-in problems you may experience with Yahoo Messenger. Some users experience sign-in issues when using older versions of the software. Yahoo engineers recommend upgrading to the newest version of Messenger. To determine what version you have, look for the "About Yahoo Messenger" link under the Help menu. Visit the Yahoo Messenger website to determine if this is the current version. b> Other Sign-in Issues b> When you have trouble signing in to Messenger, verify that your Internet connection is working. You can do this by navigating to a webpage. If you are able to sign into Yahoo Mail but not Messenger, there may be a problem with your connection settings. The Yahoo Help website offers troubleshooting steps for these settings. Hope this helps
Yahoo! Messenger gives you the option to make your status appear "online", "busy" or "offline." If you want to appear online all the time you must set the messenger to do so, especially if you changed it to a different setting at any point.
1.Sign On In order to set your instant messenger to "online" you must sign in to your account. You should use your Yahoo! email address and password to sign in to the account. If you want the program to sign you in automatically, you must check these options on the initial sign in box.
2. Settings Click your name at the top of the "friends" list and change your setting to "available." Available means you are online at your computer and ready to chat.
3. Changes No changes are made to your status unless you sign off (which you will then appear offline) or if you physically change your setting. It does not change every time you sign off.

Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again. If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.
