Hal,
Can I send you a screen shot of what I see?  Maybe then you would have a
better idea of what the next step is?  Do you have an email address I can
send it to?  I know that it can't get through freelists.

If you aren't sure leave the proxy stuff blank.

The support you all offer in this group is wonderful.  Your opinions &
suggestions are always welcomed & appreciated.

OK...I am in the middle of Trillian set up.  The question do I require a
'proxy server'...Does this mean other than DSL or ComCast?  Proxy
Information__________??? Port___________??? Does this mean proxy info:
pop3???  I haven't a clue about Port.

Just to vouch for Trillian myself... I can tell you this is the first
MULTI-CHAT client I've tried... and, I've tried several of the other
ones before this one, but never liked the others. You should be OK with
Trillian.

  OK guys, can you point the way to Trillian...sorry I thought it was
another
  email program.  Believe me when I tell you I am very novice at this
computer
  stuff.  I am perhaps three steps better than the seniors I am keeping
watch
  over.  I have been having this problem for a couple of weeks & I need
to
  resolve this as soon as possible.

  Point me to it...I'm willing to try anything.

  Jan,

  Trillian is another Instant Messenger program that allows you to
access
  several different types of IM services, such as ICQ, Yahoo Messenger,
AIM,
  etc., as Hal mentioned, all thru this one program.  It has nothing to
do
  with any email program, so I am not quite sure why you think that OE
is part
  of the problem?? Is it giving you any errors saying that?

  Also, you can access only, say, Yahoo Messenger, thru Trillian if you
don't
  use any of the other IM programs.

  It would be a way for you to check and see if Messenger works thru
your
  computer.

  Another suggestion is to uninstall it, and install a previous version?
Then
  maybe update to the current version if you want?

  | I use Express because my seniors look forward to receiving email
with

to
  learn

  |
  | Hal, why would Yahoo Messenger work for many months with Express &
now
  | refuse?  I can't imagine there being a compatibility issue here.
  |
  | It would be nice if there was some way to contact tech support for
Yahoo
  | Messenger, but as far as I know there is no way to reach a real
person.

  | The window panel with the list of names pops up immediately.  I can
even
  | see who is online but when I click on the name of the person that is
on
  | line nothing happens.  Usually a message box appears allowing for a
  | message to be typed.  But this no longer happens.  There is no
  | response...I can neither reply or initiate any correspondence...no
error
  | messages appear.  So in other words, nothing happens after the
window
  | with the list of names pops up.
  |
  | Please keep working on this issue as I use this messenger to keep
tabs
  | on several seniors.
  |
  | Thanks for your efforts,
  | Jan

  | When you say its not working... are you getting errors? or is the
Yahoo
  | Messenger window/panel just not popping up? What exactly isn't
working?
