make sure you have an internet connection. try opening a website. if you cannot log in to yahoo messenger what error are you getting? if password error check your password and user name in yahoo messenger you don't have to type in the @yahoo.com in the username and the password try to type it in the notepad to check if you typed the correct password. copy that password then paste it in the password box. check for your antivirus and firewall setting maybe it is stopping your yahoo messenger from connecting the internet. also try uninstalling and reinstalling your yahoo messenger. try downloading the latest version if still don't get any luck logging in. try to log in to the web base yahoo messenger http://webmessenger.yahoo.com/
I suggest you to check whether your email address and password is correct or not, by logging in at the www.yahoomail.com website, If you are able to login then your account exists and the email address and password is correct. If it shows wrong password, try forgot password.
If you are able to login to your account in website, only you cannot login in yahoo messenger, There might be some problem in yahoo messenger, I suggest you to download the recent version of yahoo messenger and try logging in, if problem persists check your internet connectivity, Sometimes we couldn't login if there is a problem in internet connection. There may also be problem with windows firewall settings.
And also check whether the yahoo messenger is added as exception in the windows firewall or not, If not add the yahoo messenger to exception list.

Hi! Temporarily have mail in-built messenger and don't expect video, voice or attachment services in this mail messenger. and at the same time, delete your previously available YM software and get updated one directly from web and have fine
ok, in my case i remembered I tried using a proxy on internet explorer and forgot to put it off, so the proxy connection was still on even though the proxy was dead.
It now a proven fact to me that internet explore settings are linked to yahoo mess! so make sure your internet explorer is working ok without proxy:
1. Open your Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools > Internet Options then click the Connections tab
3.Click the LAN Settings button and a new dialog box will open
4. At the new dialog box, look for the Proxy server checkbox, if this is checked, uncheck it.
5. Then your done, click OK button for the dialog boxes.
6. Try logging in to your Yahoo Messenger account.
