    Hi,

     

    Do you have any other logins to Yahoo with the same screen names ?

    Another Yahoo capable app, another computer or a web based Login ?
    There seems to be some evidence that one log in will log out a previous one to some degree. In other cases it seems to prevent login.


    Try going to the iChat Menu > Preferences > Accounts and deselecting the Use this account tick box.

    Then re-tick it  (I.e log iChat out of Yahoo then try logging in again.  Do this with no other Yahoo capable app open)

     

     

    If you have had a web based log in did you log out before quitting the page ?

    An AIM or Google Login have default Login periods of up to two weeks if you just leave the page without Logging out.

    It have solved.

    It was related to Yahoo's own problem.

    This is solved for me automatically without any actions from me.
