How do I sign-out/disable instant messaging in Yahoo! Mail?
This article explains how to sign-out of or disable the instant messaging (chat) feature in Yahoo! Mail
If you don’t want to have Yahoo! Messenger running from within Yahoo! Mail, you can disable it by signing out of Yahoo! Messenger in Mail. To do so, please follow these steps:
- In the left column of the page, find Messenger.
- Click the yellow lightning bolt to the right of it.
You are then signed out.
Note: Yahoo! Mail saves your Yahoo! Messenger status when you leave Yahoo! Mail. When you return to Yahoo! Mail, it resumes the same status. If you were signed out of Yahoo! Messenger when you last exited Yahoo! Mail, you remain signed out the next time you open your mail until you sign in again.
