    Today Yahoo stop allowing me to get web mail using my proxy/encryption
    service. All 3 of my Yahoo accounts get this error when trying to connect
    with Internet Exploder, Netscrape and Firefox:

    Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999.

    To prove it wasn't browser or computer related, I had my friend login with
    his Yahoo account on my computer and he got his mail with out the above
    error. I wrote Yahoo Support, but they suck and never reply for days, if

    I downloaded and installed the latest version of Yahoo POPs 8.4.
    I setup OE/Tools/Accounts/YahooPops/Properties/Servers:

    Pop and SMTP: localhost
    Acct Name:
    Password: xxxxx

    and it keeps asking for username/password until I get login errors. What
    should I be using for the login after my Yahoo username? Any sensible help
    would be appreciated.

    I hope......

    You have a G....R....E....A....T Day!!!
