Hi I have encountered a problem. I tried using ZoneAlarm as well as
Sygate Personal Firewall. Whenever I start my Yahoo messenger I get a
message to allow it or not. When I saw yes it allows me to login to
yahoo messenger, but I can't receive any messages from my friends. Does
anyone know why? or has anyone the solution for the problem?
