1) If you do not have IE as your default browser make sure its not set to 'Work offline' in Tools
IE is interlinked with Yahoo Messenger and needs to be kept updated
2) On the sign in page click > Messenger > Internet Connection and check everything is in order especially your Internet Connection settings in the lower left box
If its incorrect change it and click OK

Chat With Multiple Yahoo Accounts At The Same Time On Same Computer


Yahoo Messenger is today one of the most popular instant messengerservices. However, this service has its own set of limitations as well.Users using Yahoo Messenger must be aware that the service can be usedfor one account ID at a time. This means that if you want to usemultiple IDs for interacting with your clients and colleagues, you cando this alternately. You have to sign out from the current logged on IDand then log on to another ID. This is a big head ache for techniciansand professionals who need to activate their Yahoo IDs for servingmultiple purposes at the same time. But not any more! To serve the samepurpose, a revolutionary software M Multi Yahoo Messenger has beenlaunched.M Multi Yahoo Messenger is the software that allows users to loginto Yahoo Messenger with multiple Yahoo IDs at the same time. Thismeans that you can now work on more than one window of its instantmessenger client. With the help of this software you can easily loginwith different Yahoo accounts at the same time. This way you can easilyinteract with different groups of friends in your friend lists at thesame time.
This software is available for free of cost to all the online users.It does not require the installation of any other software or plug-into activate this software. It is compatible with all the versions ofYahoo Messenger. It appears as a patch on your IM client software.

Hi I am getting 81003002 error for yahoomessenger and also for mail. Can u please help me out from this error.


Hi Kiran,

  1. Try to login after some specific time , and check if you are able to login successfully,
  2. After several attempts in the login fails, then you need to restart the PC and try again while you are connected to the internet.
  3. Make sure that you have not logged in to yahoo mail from your browser/internet explorer, if you have then you need to log out and check logging in the yahoo messenger only.
  4. Remove the application via uninstall from the add / remove programs option , and then delete the registry keys related to yahoo messenger or the complete yahoo messenger folder and then install it again , as many time it would work.
  5. To remove the registry keys you need to start regedit.exe from the run command in the start menu and search for yahoo messenger for e.g. "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo\Pager"
  6. Delete the folder for pager if it exists.
  7. Resintall yahoo messenger , and try to login again and it should work fine.
Please get back to me in case you have any queries, hope this solution would solve your problem, your feedback is valuable and it would be appreciated.

Dear Sir, I'am get problem with my YM because I can't see anything text in send and receive .... I'ved already uninstall and install again but this problem is still same, Could you help me please to...


Hello there,

If uninstalling and reinstalling your Yahoo Messenger does not fix the problem, try creating a new user on your computer and login to that user and start yahoo messenger from there. This is actually a corrupted user setting problem on your current one.

Let me know how this goes.

Question, if i'm logged into yahoo msgr on my desktop and then login to it on my iphone, does it show a "logout" followed by a "login" message to other users?


Yes. However, individual yahoo messenger users can specify what alerts appear on their messenger clients. The default for yahoo messenger will send alert that you have logged in when you move from your desktop computer to your iphone.

Hi I can not log in my yahoo messenger. When i try, this is the messeeage i get"we can't sign in to yahoo! Messenger"


That may be causes by many issues. I would suggest you try a few different things to try and solve your problem. The first thing i would suggest trying is try to log on to your yahoo messenger through there web site interface https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.src=pg if you are able to log in through there you know its a problem with your computer settings and not a user name/password issue. If that works i would suggest you reinstall yahoo messenger and see if that corrects your issue if not I would download pigin http://www.pidgin.im/ and that will be an alternate client that will allow you to log into your account.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,
Norse

Cannot Log into Yahhoo messenger


1. First, ensure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
2. Confirm that your password is not hacked by loging into your yahoo email account with the same user ID that your using to login to the yahoo messenger, by going to http://mail.yahoo.com.
3. If you are able to log into your email account, your ID is safe.
4. Try to kill yahoo messenger on your system using "Task Manager"
5. To open Task Manager, right click on your computer's task bar at the bottom and click on "Task Manager".
6. Next, click on the "Process" tab in Task Manager, select "YahooMessenger.exe" and click on "End Process" button.
7. If you cannot find "YahooMessenger.exe", then select "Ymsgr_tray.exe" and click on "end process".
8. Now start your yahoo messenger again and try to login. You should be able to login succesfully.

9. If your Internet connection is fine and you have followed the above-mentioned process and still cannot login to yahoo messenger, your system's fire wall is probably obstructing yahoo messenger to access internet.
10. Change the necessary settings on your firewall to leverage access to yahoo messenger.
