Question about Yahoo Messenger
You can try this:
Goto Connection Prefrences and use a http proxy
Click on Messenger
Under Category, choose "Connection"
Then, click on the "HTTP proxy" radio button.
Note: You might want to check the internet connection type as well. If you are using Broadband (DSL/Cable), then change it to Broadband (DSL/Cable).

as far as wat i did to my YM.
i simply checked the connection preferences and turned
"Connect via a proxy server."
after that take a look at your internet connection dropdown list..
some mistakes are seen here.. instead of having the "broadband" connection selected the "dial-up" connection was chosen by YM itself..
hope that helps ya ^^

There have some similar problems when you try to sign your yahoo messenger, you might be have 3 options:-
1. Go to Messenger>Connection Preferences> then, you choose either connection directly to the internet or connect via a proxy server, and then choose type of internet connection>OK>Sign in again... let's try this, may be you can solve this problem. OR
2. Maybe, i think you should check your firewall settings. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you to use yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger. OR
3. Open your Internet Explorer>Go to File>Then you 'uncheck Work Offline, make sure your Interent connection is not working offline. Then, close Internet Explorer, try to sign in your yahoo messenger.
Try to find out these! Good Luck!

Firstly; this error occurs when your connection preferences are not properly set. I'm not talking about your Yahoo! ID and Password here, but you may need to adjust certain features depending on what network you're on. Let's says for example, if a firewall protects your network, it may block yahoo messenger when it tries to connect to the server. You need to change your connection settings, click the Messenger menu in yahoo messenger and select Connection Preferences. Select Firewall With No Proxies. Select your Internet Connection type from the pull-down menu at the bottom and enter your Home Country if the adoptions aren’t grayed out. Click OK and login again using the new settings. If this option doesn’t work, click Connection Preferences in Yahoo! Messenger again and select No Network Detection. Try to login again using the new settings. In some instances, you may need to provide yahoo messenger with the IP address of your firewall or proxy server (you can get this information from your network administrator or from your Internet service provider). Click Messenger and select Connection Preferences again. Select Use Proxies. Enable either the HTTP Proxy or the SOCKS Proxy as needed and provide the proper address. Click OK and login again using the new settings.Secondly, if you are using IM9 there are sign in problems. This is what yahoo has to say. Try an updated version of Yahoo! Messenger 9.0(126.96.36.1998). This latest build includes a fix for the sign-in issues that have been affecting some users. If you were seeing an error code“81003005” when trying to sign in, this latest version may fix that problem. Even if you were experiencing a different kind of sign-in issue, I recommend installing this latest version.Hope it was helpful!
