    When I logged on to my yahoo account yesterday, I was able to log in BUT my list of contacts do not appear. The box just shows my profile picture, my status and the never ending rotating sticks. I am unable to access my mail from here and I am unable to change my status.

    I tried re-installing the yahoo program, but there were no changes.

    Has anyone else experienced the same problem? Any tips?

    Mods, I tried searching for a similar problem but didn't find any. Just in case I missed it, kindly merge to similar thread...Thanks!

    this will solve your problem
    re-installing ym is not the solution

    1. Quit Y! Messenger
    2. Open a Finder window (the Mac icon on your dock)
    3. Click on your user name on the left side
    4. Open the "Library" folder
    5. Open the "Caches" folder
    6. Open the "Yahoo! Messenger" folder
    7. Drag files in that folder to the Trash
    8. Click the back button twice until you are back in "Library"
    9. Open the "Preferences" folder
    10. Find the files that start with com.yahoo.messenger
    11. Drag them to the Trash
    12. Start Y! Messenger


    search is my friend;)

    Many thanks!

    I did use the search options and looked through almost all threads. Guess I missed the most important ones.
