With Yahoo! Messenger open on my Macbook (OS X 10.8.2), I closed my laptop for a couple of hours. I have done this before without problem. However, last night, when I opened my laptop, Yahoo! Messenger had disconnected from the network and logged me out. With the network connection now re-established, I attempted to logon and use Yahoo! Messenger with the same account I had previously used, but no success. Either the login fails or the wheel just spins.

Also, I had saved this Yahoo! ID along with three others. The other two remain as options to select when logging in. However, the Yahoo! ID I was using when I closed the laptop is no longer available. I have to re-enter the Yahoo! ID and password now.

    Does it work on Yahoo's website? – dsolimano Mar 30 '15 at 13:56
  • It works from Yahoo! Mail for that user. – Dawn Mar 30 '15 at 16:06

    And using it from Yahoo! Mail seems to have corrected the problem with the app. Thanks! – Dawn Mar 30 '15 at 16:11
  • Ok, just added that as an answer. – dsolimano Mar 31 '15 at 14:36

Try logging into Yahoo via the web, that might get it working, or at least let us know if it's an account issue or a messanger issue.
