Check your Internet Explorer settings by going to Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Settings

Then check Automatically Detect Settings.

Also do this again - Tools>Internet Options>Connections>

Then this time click LAN Settings and check Automatically Detect Settings

Click Apply and then try logging in to Yahoo Messenger again.

Im not sign in to yahoo.messenger?


try cleaning system and browsers junk and registry corruption with reginout, this problem will be hopefully resolved: http://www.reginout.com
also try this:
Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.
3. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
3. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Use proxies" option.
3. Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect, contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or the person who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/or proxy settings are correct.

I can't sign in on ym.it says i typed incorrect password but its not.


You must first check if the problem is with your e-mail account. Log in on your email account using your email address and password. If your were unable, settle first the issue with yahoo mail before you can log in with yahoo messenger.

If you can access your mail account, before signing in to yahoo messenger verify for capital letters in your password. If you are sure the password is correct, then the last option is to get in the answer and question portion of yahoo messenger to send to your e-mail the correct password on your yahoo messenger account. Click Forget Password to start the verification and reset your password.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Why won't IM let me sign in? It keeps going to sleep


I would like to help you with your issue. but we have to check the following first

http://webmessenger.yahoo.com/ try log into the Web Messenger

> Step 1: Test Your Internet Connection
> Step 2: Verify Your Yahoo! ID and Password
Open Internet explorer and www.mail.yahoo.com
Check by sign in to you account
> Step 3: Test Your Access to Secure Pages
Make sure that you can access secure pages from Internet Explorer
Try to sign in to Yahoo! by going to the Yahoo! sign in page and enter the same Yahoo! ID and password you were using before.
> Step 4: Verify Credentials
Verify that the same Yahoo! ID and password you used before in the last step also works in the online version of Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger for the Web:
http://webmessenger.yahoo.com/
enter the same Yahoo! ID and password you were using before.
> Step 5: Check Connection Settings
Click the Messenger menu and select Connection Preferences.
Click Connect directly to the Internet, and then click OK.

Check by Changing the connection type to a connection via a proxy server:
Click the Messenger menu and select Connection Preferences.
Click Connect via a proxy server, then under this option, select HTTP proxy, and then click OK.


Last is Uninstall all the Yahoo Tool Bars and Yahoo applications , Yahoo Messenger, and Yahoo Updates from Program list i.e Control panel - Add/Rem Programs ..
And reinstall the Yahoo Messenger again -

Hoping the above info will be useful for you
