Pidgin Can’t Sign-in to Yahoo?

Pidgin the multi-protocol IM

the multi-protocol IM

I don’t know why, but it’s been 2 days and I still can’t access my Yahoo! account by using any other protocol than Yahoo!Messenger itself (or the web-messenger approach). All this time, I’m quite fond with pidgin the multi-protocol IM since I can access multiple account at the same time. But now, I only use it for my MSN and GTalk account.

[ad#GA-Post-Link (120x90)]Anyone can explain me what is going on?
Do Yahoo! has stopped giving support for the other products to access the system? Since I also have tried other IM application (eBuddy from my cellphone) and it doesn’t work either.

    Got it!

    Need to change the Pager Server address. I use this value at this moment and it works just fine:

    I have the same problem… just sticks on connecting. Did you fix this?

    If you haven’t tried to upgrade the pidgin, do so.

    I found out that Yahoo! has upgraded their server. So they now apply a new secure connection method, which isn’t supported in the earlier version of pidgin.
    I have upgraded mine to v2.5.7 and it works great!

    And about changing the Yahoo Pager Server, no need to do that part anymore.
