Don't know what I'm doing wrong. Yahoo IM won't connect. no problems with aol or icq. Even downloaded the new one and tried that one. same thing.

it just goes through the connection attempt and recycles. never connects

any suggestions?

How are you connecting to the internet? Dial up? Cable?

Maybe check the Connection Preferences in Yahoo Messenger.

Even when it's offline, just go up top to 'Messenger' then 'Connection Preferences'

Is it set to behind any proxies?
I had a feeling it was the proxies :)

Glad to hear it was resolved.

You can mark the thread 'solved' by going up top to "Thread Tools"

Have a great night :up:
