Older versions of Yahoo Messenger will begin shutting down on August 5, 2016. If you haven't upgraded Yahoo Messenger recently, you're probably using a legacy version. To continue using Yahoo Messenger, please upgrade to the newest version: [...]

The "upgraded version" is that crap web aplication that does not even know to reused the stored First Name+Last Name of the contacts. Now I have to remmeber who is 'crappants2043455'?!?! :(

Does anyone even use this stupid thing anymore? Seems like this is headed down the path of AOL messenger and ICQ - all these little chat messenger apps have all be slaughtered by facebook's messenger and skype. Plus now Yahoo is owned by the biggest rip-off cell company in the USA, Verizon - so I doubt we'll see any brilliant innovations here to bring users back., And really - if you're a user keeping your yahoo messenger ID alive - why the hell would you want to use this ad-filled CPU hogging pile of bloatware crap anyway? Just used some 3rd party gizmo like trillian or something..

I did run this messenger last month & was disappointed with it. Nothing like as polished as MSN/Live. Use the fixer with MSN/Live & get rid of the junk you don't want.

Unfortunately, the only good solution for using the messenger service provided by Yahoo.

The new Yahoo Messenger 11 Message Archive sucks big time! The loading is much slower than v10 and the left pane (from v10) - users category - is gone! Now, we have all users in one window, a total mess!

PS. Not all my messages has been imported with v11, some are gone, nowhere to be found, vanished... as I said before sucks big time!

Nothing new from last beta except one or two skins added. Works as expected but would expect something drastic on major version change. A bit disappointed.

I prefer (and I hope this goes no further) 'Windows Live Messenger' There I've said it now.
