Yahoo rolled out new authentication method.

Fixes suggested here don't work any longer:

Error looks like this regardless of server tried:

(08:15:32) account: Connecting to account xxxxxxxxxx (08:15:32) connection: Connecting. gc = 0266ACA0 (08:15:32) dnsquery: Performing DNS lookup for (08:15:32) dnsquery: IP resolved for (08:15:32) proxy: Attempting connection to (08:15:32) proxy: Connecting to with no proxy (08:15:32) proxy: Connection in progress (08:15:32) proxy: Connecting to (08:15:32) yahoo: 100 bytes to read, rxlen is 120 (08:15:32) yahoo: Yahoo Service: 0x57 Status: 1 (08:15:32) yahoo: yahoo status: 99

According to a reliable source (and I apologize for not having the details) is that Y! is no longer sending back a presence packet upon authentication. I'm sure that a review of a Wireshark capture will confirm this.

Hope this helps.
