    Are you running behind a router, or firewall? Check those settings.
    I had a similar issue with YM for the Mac, but once I updated to the latest version I no longer have such problems.

    Have you checked your computer for viruses or spyware? You could use Ad-Aware or jv16 Powertools. NOD32 is a good free anti-virus program.

    If you are using an older version of Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo! has disabled older versions and does not let them connect to the network therefore the files are there simply for archival purposes and cultural / historical analysis. If anyone has figured out a way to bypass the system, feel free to post it so that we can figure out how to make older versions connect in the name of education.

    Yes, read the posting above yours. Which ABlix states, as did I, you will need the latest version.
