Has anyone used Yahoo Messenger on the XDA? I have it installed and running, but can't connect to the Yahoo server. Any advice?

I have used YM (on the XDA in the UK on O2), you need to set it up using the proxy server.

It does work but the software itself seems to close itself, apart from sometimes getting offline messages, i didn't see any increased benefit over MSN messenger

It won't because that IP address is for a specific provider. Try searching at your providers website for proxy server adresses and subsitute those.

I would love to get Yahoo Messenger working on my XDA with o2! Is this possible? I looked on the Yahoo site for a download but doesn't seem to be one there.

Any help appreciated

Yahoo for PPC 2002

visit www.yahoo.Co.uk click on the messenger link then look at the left of the screen. there is a link to wincE versions and open that will show you 2 versions. 1 for ppc 2002 and 1 for older wince versions.
However the problems listed above regarding servers and ports should be noted.
