Hi Colin,

Yahoo support is provided by a third party plugin and wouldn't be something
that would normally be supported by the support at mailing list
(which is normally just for core Pidgin support)

Coincidentally I'm one of the unfortunate authors of the FunYahoo++ plugin,
so I'm able to respond. It looks like Yahoo made a change on their servers
again.  The best place to track this is on the Issue Tracker for the plugin
