Assuming that you are using windows firewall you nee To disable your firewall by going intointo controll panel, select windows firewall, and select Off. I do not recomend doing so but if you need to do so to download what you need then I sudgest you turn it back on right after you finish downloading.

Try disabling your firewall software, if the site is accessible, that means it's something with your firewall's configuration.
You can also try to disable Windows firewall. This sometimes helps.
Hope this helps.

How i can install yahoo mail


Hi,

Yahoo Mail
is a web site - no installation required. Only Messenger requires a download and installation.
Use a search engine to find the web site, then sign in as usual.
The links for downloading Messenger are below.

Download and SAVE the program directly from the
File Hippo web site - it seems more successful than an update or install from Yahoo's site, or even choosing to install by Run. I suggest saving it to your Desktop so it doesn't get 'lost'. Download the most recent version of any Yahoo Instant Messenger (highest number, top of its list)

Some firewalls have issues with installing Messenger, but disabling your firewall while online is very dangerous. Usually, by installing after downloading, the firewall will ask for permission to run the program.


If you use
Internet Explorer 8 as your browser, Yahoo Messenger 10 will not work properly without Flash and Java programs also installed.

Have a nice day

Often two firewalls on the same LAN conflict. Both are trying to do the same job; the conflict may cause an otherwise good Internet connection to drop. If this happens, use the NETGEAR firewall, and disable the other. Two situations are described here, but the general approach applies to any firewall active on a NETGEAR LAN.
The Windows firewall may be turned on without you knowing, for example, if the XP Network Setup Wizard was used.
To Disable Windows' Firewall
See Microsoft knowledgebase article: How to: Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewall In Windows XP. (Note that you must be logged on as administrator, if you are not, no "Advanced" tab will appear as described.) For hints about using these Windows features, search firewall in Windows help, and select the article Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewalls.

To Enable the NETGEAR Firewall
Consult your router's User Guide or Reference Manual. Look for sections such as "Using Basic Firewall Services" or "Allowing and blocking keywords, sites, services". Manuals are available for downloading on this site.

To Disable the Norton Firewall
  1. Right-click the Norton Internet Security icon on the system tray and select Disable.

To Disable the McAfee Firewall
  1. Uninstall McAfee
  2. Reinstall McAfee, selecting Custom Installation.
  3. Unselect McAfee Firewall.
  4. Finish the rest of the McAfee installation as you did before.
To Disable Zone Alarm
  1. Right-click the Zone Alarm icon in the System Tray, and select Shutdown Zone Alarm.
Also search the Zone Alarm forum for such issues as this product continually logging people off AOL, or Windows XP wrongly reporting that Zone Alarm has been turned off.

I can't sign in to yahoo messenger, what's the possible reason?


If you can browse other site, it is usually indicate an issue with a Network Firewall either on the PC/Laptop or on the Router.
If you have an antivirus/antispyware/firewall installed on your PC/Laptop, review the log to see if it is stopping you from using a Mail program or just temporarily disable the antivirus/antispyware/firewal software before trying to disable your router firewall (if you are allowed that is!).
Hope the information is useful.

Install older version of yahoo messenger..
And let me tell your one thing that, when to try to login to your yahoo account on yahoo messenger, your internet connection must be responding. This you can ensure by keeping your server busy(opening websites).
The problem you are telling might be caused when you are trying to login to yahoo account through yahoo messenger and yahoo mail.
I recommend you that you open yahoo account through yahoo mail(only if you are unable to sign in to yahoo account through yahoo messenger.)
yahoo mail now-a-days is providing yahoo chat service when you sign in your yahoo account on yahoo mail.
at left side of your mail box you can see yahoo mini messenger.
