    Problem connecting to Yahoo Messenger server

    For some reason, I can't connect to the Yahoo server using Miranda-IM. In Miranda's Options menu, on the Yahoo screen, here's how I have everything set:

    ID: [my Yahoo screen name]
    Password: [my Yahoo password - and yes, I'm sure it's correct]

    Login server: scs.msg.yahoo.com Port: 5050
    [ ] Disable UTF8 encoding
    [ ] Disable main menu (needs restart)
    [ ] Use Yahoo Address Book (YAB)
    [checked] Show errors
    [ ] Show Avatars

    ([ ] means an unchecked box.)

    When I try to change my Yahoo status to Online, a balloon message pops up from the Miranda-IM system tray icon. It says:

    Yahoo Error
    server connection error Connection closed by server

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks for your time.

    Same happens to me.
    I'm using Miranda 0.4 (Built Apr 7 2005 12:43:57)
    Is this a general problem or does someone manage to connect?

    Try upgrading to the latest build ( works for me) and see if that helps.

    Don't know if it helps:
    A simple solution, the user namer for hotmail includes ...@hotmail.com for yahoo it DOESN'T need to be included (so no ...@yahoo.com)
    This helped me connecting to yahoo at scs.msg.yahoo.com:5050

    a network log would give major clues on to why you cannot connect
