    you can try disabling yahoo sync in apple address book and apple ical.

    go to the dock
    click on finder
    go to the menu bar
    click on the go menu
    from the go menu chose applications
    double click on address book
    when address book opens, go to the address book menu, and chose preferences.
    the general preferences window will pop up
    click on accounts tab
    from the accounts list click on "on my mac"
    uncheck "synchronize with Yahoo!"
    close the window
    quite address book

    if you still have the issue. OR "synchronize with Yahoo!" was not checked in address book
    open ical in the applications folder
    from the ical menu, chose preferences
    click on the accounts tab
    the accounts list may list a yahoo account. if so, click on it, you can click on it and then click on the "-" to remove the account.

    Regarding the yahoo sync alert:
    I appreciate the help.
    I did have yahoo link checked in my address book - I unchecked it - it remains unchecked and also unchecked on rebooting.
    Unfortunately I am still getting the yahoo sync alert message periodically m my desktop.
    there was no yahoo account int the ical program.
    Ehere else can I look?
    Regards,
    Gedeon
    - most grateful for out input.

    Regarding the yahoo sync alert which I still can not get rid of despite trying and removig any association with address-book and ical -
    what else can i do?
    Is there a way in snow leopard to remove alerts and or other such messages in the system?

    I also have this issue. I have tried unticking the "Synchronise with Yahoo!" option in Address Book but when I shut down Address Book and re-open it the option is ticked. There is no Yahoo account in iCal. I have scoured the hard drive for any configuration files which may be causing this option to be ticked but cannot find anything obvious. Can anyone help as this is driving me mad?

    Thanks

    Apple isn't here.

    This is a user to user forum as stated in the TOU.

    unsure which planet you live on but apple is certainly here. apple scourers these forums and other forums like macrumours to ascertain customer satisfaction/disatisfaction, bugs and public trends. if enough people report bugs/concerns or wishes apple will listen.

    i was not asking apple for the answer. i was asking the forum. i was inadvertently making a jovial retort to apple to make a fix.

    I have no idea where you get your information from but it certainly isn't a reliable source. If you go through the TOU, you will see where Apple distinctly stated that they do NOT in fact monitor this forums for problems.

    A much more reliable way to get Apple attention is to use the feedback sites listed at

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/

    granted. however i wouldn't discount that apple indirectly monitors these sites with fervour. i don't need sources to speculate that employee's come home from work and view these boards, garner opinions from their "homework" and implement back at the office where they don't monitor "discussions".

    however, this still is far far away from the simple statement i was originally making. to put it another way, i was merely standing in front of the apple store yelling at steve on the 600th floor pleading for an answer.

    allan, as a member of 12000 posts, how about some form of guidance toward an answer rather than spouting references toward the TOU. it's not really helping me.

    Since I have nothing to do with Yahoo in any way, shape or form, I am not the best to help you in that arena. Sorry.

  • Joey Delli Gatti Level 1 Level 1 (65 points)

    Bwahaha.  I have a solution.  Delete this: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/YahooSync.framework

     

    or just

     

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/YahooSync.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Yahoo ! Sync.app

    I can't believe how many forums I browsed to find this solution. F*k Yahoo!!
