IIRC, there is some strange bug in how Yahoo handles their Nameservers which
can cause certain users (not sure which, or how it only works for some)
trouble in resolving the nameservers. My solution for this was to connect to
an alternate Yahoo messaging server, such as their chinese domain,
cn.scs.msg.yahoo.com which seems to allow connections much better.

As for MSN I am not sure.

Thanks and best regards,
