Anyone else out there having trouble getting connected to Yahoo IM? I can login to my account with yahoo.com, however, Trillian will not connect to my yahoo account. Says the password is invalid. But it's the same password I used to login to my account on yahoo.com.

Yes, me too.

 

I use Kopete(Linux) for Yahoo IM (and others) and the yahoo portion is rejecting my password. I think I saw news article saying that Yahoo has pulled the plug on 3rd party access. I'm not sure on this though ... but given your note it could be true.

 

We could be stuck for good on this one.

Hi Tracy,

 

Yahoo changed their authentification - you need to download the latest patch (or version) of Trillian and that cures it.

Thanks for the help. Will get on that as soon as this storm passes. For now, I better shut down. Just got the puter working properly this week after the last big storm!
