Hi what you have to do is "Open Port(s)" in your Firewall. I have found a tutorial link below to help. Simply you need to find out which "Port(s)" ya need "Open" then "Open" these "Port(s)" through the Windows Firewall, & OR any Other... by following the tutorial & use that/those "Port Number(s)" for real. I believe for Yahoo the "Ports" needed to be "opened" are. Both UDP/TCP 5000 to 5010. Meaning open 10 "Ports" through ya Firewall. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial40.html

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
