    There are some major problems with yahoo IM going on for weeks, it wont forward emails, it makes sign on every 5 to 10 minutes. I have found when I am communicating with women yahoo cuts me off, why, I a theory about why. Remember they just laid off 1700 people, they have a CEO who really can’t do the job and I think she is the one who ordered that men talking to or chasing women is not going to happen on her site, and certainly no Risqué pictures can be sent because she does not like it. Yahoo is developing some very serious operating difficulties that are not improving…….just my opinion

    I am still having log in problem. I can log in from computer and tablet but not from my android phone. Very inconvenient. I have tried all the steps via the Yahoo Help but none of them work. It just says I am using an unknown user name or password which is not true. I live in the UK.

    I have YM on my PC and iPhone and use it on one OR the other. Recently no offline messages have been appearing on either – nothing. I do not keep a history of messages either. What could be the problem and how can I resolve it?
