    Y!M for Mac is still in Beta (since forever) so you can't expect it not to have bugs. Check which build of Y!M you have by clicking Yahoo! Messenger > About Yahoo! Messenger. It should say "Yahoo! Messenger version 3.0 beta 3 (xxxxxx). Compare the build you have to the latest one on VersionTracker or the Y!M website. Be sure you have the latest updates.

    Also, you can try this:
    Open a new Finder window and navigate to *Home Folder*/Library/Preferences.
    Find the files starting with "com.yahoomessenger3."
    Drag them to the trash.
    Start Y!m

    Hope this helps :)

    if ever you're giving up on ym, try downloading adium. it's sooo much more customizable. i'm sure you'll like it.

    The problem with the current release of Adium is that you can't take advantage of YM's video & audio chat. Currently Adium doesn't have these features when using your YM account on it. So, for now, I've ditched Adium and gone back to using the original YM client.

    You can't get older versions of any app on the App Store. I suggest you install a universal chat client like Beejive, Palringo, Meebo, etc. instead.
