    i have a problem with my yahoo messenger version 3.0 beta 2, why is it that when the other person is using MSN, they always appear offline and when they send message to me, i have to log out and log in again just to see their message. i needed your help to solve this problem.

    I'm also wondering if there is an option for voice chatting with Yahoo Messenger.

    My problem with YM is that it scrolls all the way up everytime you read a msg. That's why I always use Adium. Sacrifice the webcam feature for the meantime. :cool:

    I used to have the same problem with YM but i was using an older version and i had installed safari beta. i read somewhere that the problem used to be because of an incompatibility between those 2 softwares. the problem was only resolved for me when i installed the latest version of YM for mac, Version 3.0 beta 2 (build 78326). i hope this works for you because i know this can be very irritating. just to complete the info. i'm using a macbook with leopard. :p

    i don't think YM for mac, or YM in general for that matter, has voice features. that's why i use iChat with an AIM account, or skype, for video conferencing.

    I can't believe this ..See I did have conferencing sessions with guys using yahoo msgr ver. 3.0 where I was using gomeetnow software. Its as smooth as one's face to face. No issue at all.
