I upgraded to Mac OS X 10.4.2 and did a software update. I got no errors with any of the updates and everything seemed to install cleanly with no errors. But now, I'm unable to access Yahoo Mail with Safari 2.0.1. I get the following error immediately after I login.

Safari can’t open the page.
Safari can’t open the page “http://us.f319.mail.yahoo.com/ym/login?.rand=7x4ij01c6t49m”. The error was: “bad server response” (NSURLErrorDomain:-1011) Please choose Report Bug to Apple from the Safari menu, note the error number, and describe what you did before you saw this message.

But, I can use all other Yahoo services so the login by itself to Yahoo is successful. Moreover, I can access Yahoo Mail with IE 5.2. I use Safari for all my access to websites, so I'd really like to know if anyone has seen and successfully fixed this problem.

    Are you using a bookmark or do you have a password saved? Try empty cache (under Safari) and clear history (under history), delete password in Safari Preferences User Names and Passwords.

    Then try again

    Thanks for your tips. I don't have passwords saved so I tried the rest, but it still wouldn't work.

    There does seem to be a painful workaround, which is to login to Yahoo Address Book, select Yahoo Mail Folders from the drop down menu, and then select Inbox. This got me to the Yahoo Inbox, but I must say it is quite pathetic to have to access the Yahoo Inbox such.

    I am having the same problem. ironically, it is only a problem under my wifes account. My account, which is on the same computer, has no problems. This seems to be a problem that has recently developed, so I am stumped. Any thoughts are much appreciated.

    If it works under one account and not the other using the same application, then it is likely a issue with preferences. Move or trash your Safari preferences file (/Users/you/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist) and try it again.
