The games hosts are currently,, ... up to You'll need to do a ns-lookup on these hosts to find out the IP addresses.

Glad to HELP YOU!

That error was caused by a interrupted Internet connection or by a corrupted installer.
All you have to do is to UNINSTALL Yahoo! IM and to download it again, and after that to let it be installed properly.
If you have a wireless connection this "gaps" into the Wi-Fi Internet access it happens often. So if possible switch to a "wired" Internet connection!

My best wishes!

The problem is about voice chating

Please consider checking cpu temp. right as it happens to see maybe it affects your comp.
You do that by entering bios setup and look for hardware monitor there you could find cput temp. - it shouldn't pass the 60-65 degrees celcius.
Thank you for using agadycom.

Yahoo im

You can check the Yahoo IM preferences, enable sound alerts for different events.
Navigate to Messenger Menu---> Preferences---->By default, yahoo alert for an instant message is just a small popup sound which can hardly be heard.You may also enable message flashing so that the messages you receive keep on flashing till you read them. You can also change the default sounds for all the events though.

Email set up problems

from the data you have given, me, it sounds like you are using Either Outlook, or the bundled Windows Mail service.  
What is happening, is that an email your program is trying to send, an email with "test" in the subject line, but is unable to because it cannot connect to the server. looking at the string, I see several problems. make sure your settings are configured a mentioned below: 
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: (Use SSL, port: 995)
  • Outgoing (SMTP) Server: (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
  • Account Name/Login Name: your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "")
  • Email Address: your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g.,
If this doesn't resolve your problem, refer to this page for more information. (Note: if you do not subscribe and pay in to a "Yahoo Plus" plan, this could also pose a problem, as Yahoo does not allow you to use third-party email programs with their "free" service, as they like to restrict it to webmail only. If you want a free email service that *does* however, I strongly suggest you check out google's Gmail service [what I use])
