Last FULL version is of 5.0 was...
5.0.0.1066 so if you're having problems that you suspect originates from your current version of Yahoo Messenger (not you're computer) you might want to give some thought to using this version.

What happened to Deny a Buddy? Yahoo has removed the page :-( We've written to them asking for permission to host it but haven't heard back from them yet. We know there is a few ppl out their hosting a copy of it.. all we have to say is please take care.. ONLY use the page if it's provided by someone you know and trust.

What happened to using HTML and Sound? alas it looks like the Dings and sounds are dead.. at least for some/now. The upgrade with 1065/1066 has done the deed


Version 5.0 Info...
icon 4.1.0.998Yahoo! has released version 5001066
System Requirements are still the same:
1. Microsoft Windows 95/98/98SE/ME/NT/2000/XP
2. Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 and above
3. a Yahoo! Account (don't panic about this because it's really easy to set up and it's free. The first time you launch Messenger simply hit Get a Yahoo ID and fill out the required fields)

[Yahoo! Messenger] You can download 5001066 from [http://messenger.yahoo.com] (Yahoo! site) Yahoo has provided a direct download link for messenger so if you're one those having trouble downloading via the wee install file or can't seem to get the lasted version then check out [Yahoo! Trouble/Downloading Installing].

Note: if you're having trouble getting the latest version then try the following...
The trick to getting the version you're after is to manually change the download link...
http://download.yahoo.com/dl/installs/ymsgr/ <- download location
ymsgr_1050.exe <- file name
so if the version our after is say 5001065 then you need to enter..
http://download.yahoo.com/dl/installs/ymsgr/ymsgr_1065.exe
if you're after 5001061 then you'd type in..
http://download.yahoo.com/dl/installs/ymsgr/ymsgr_1061.exe
etc etc :-)
