That is a standard message printed (usually)by gmail and is not related to instant messaging.

Something is clearly wrong with your yahoo account, as this email ended up in my spam box because:
 "It has a from address in yahoo.com<http://yahoo.com> but has failed yahoo.com<http://yahoo.com>'s required tests for authentication"

Maybe try resetting your password on the yahoo website.

I am unable to log into my pidgin account after using a public wifi at a local hospital – see the below message:

Account locked: You have been logging in too frequently.  Wait a few minutes before trying to connect again.  Logging into the Yahoo website may help.

I have no issue logging into my Yahoo Instant Message account from within the Yahoo browser.  I have no issue with logging into my Yahoo Instant Message account from my Windows 7 Notebook using the YIM program.

When I open Pidgin I am unable to re-enable my Yahoo account.  I have tried deleting my YIM account from Pidgin and creating a new account – no luck.  If ever when as far as deleting the Pidgin program from Windows 7, reinstalling a fresh copy of the program and still no luck logging into my “rickn1035” YIM account.


Thanks much!
