Easy solution. In your contact list the bold text is usually the group of yahoo id's. You might have one list for family and another for friends etc. Right click on the list and select the option send message to group or something of that nature. It will send a message to every user within that set of names. Sorry no one got back to you in time for your Christmas greetings. :)

I'm using Y! Messenger 11. People can't read my IMs though I can read theirs. They can even see me typing, but the IMs themselves are not received.

Dear Sir,
It seems to be you are using most recent version yahoo messenger and others are using older versions.Try by reinstalling your yahoo messenger client. I think it helps let me know.

When you delete a contact from your Messenger List, he can still see you when you are online so he can still send you a message, because your id is still on his Messenger list. You need to put him in your Ignore List so he cannot send you IMs anymore.

You need to delete the name/id of the contact before blocking him....so jot down the name/id first before you delete (because you'll need it as we go along with the blocking process).

Do a stealth on him too so he can't see you whenever you are on "available" status.

Here's how you stealth him --

On your YM, click Actions > Send an Instant Message > Other Contact......type in his id > OK
(an IM window opens. Do not type anything....you are not IMng him)

On the IM window, click Actions > Contact Options > Stealth Settings...select "Appear Permanently offline to xxxxx".

Close IM window.

Having done that, right click the id and click "Delete".

Now, you are going to "block" or add him to your "Ignore List".

Here's how to do it..

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."

2. Click the "Ignore List" category.

3. Select the option labeled "Ignore only the people below."

4. Click the "Add" button.

5. Enter the Yahoo ID of the contact you want to ignore.

6. Click the "Ignore" button.

7. Click "OK" at the bottom of the window.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You may have hit some settings on your messenger that will not allow you to send IM. The quickest and easiest way to solve your problem is to reinstall your Yahoo Messenger.

Go to your start menu on bottom left of computer. Then select control panel. Hit uninstall program. Find yahoo and uninstall it.
It may leave the icon on your main screen. Right click the messenger and hit delete.

Then go to link provided below and install it again. When you uninstall the program, you are not deleting your account. When you have successfully installed messenger, just log in with your normal user name and password and try your IM!

Someon pops up on my chat and it's not really that person..is it a problem with my computer or theirs? What can I do about it? I have also come up on a friend's chat and it wasn't me.

It's normal to receive instant messages from uknown contacts(obviously bots). It's a way of phishing or infecting your computer. When you respond to their IMs, they would reply with automated answers and then give you links that will direct you to suspicious websites.

Regarding the IMs that your friends receive from your account but you know you did not send that message, It is possible that your computer is infected with a virus or someone has your log-in credentials for Yahoo Messenger. Please run a scan using Malwarebytes or Trojan Remover to check for infections. And, change the password of your Yahoo account.
