Further to that, if its IE 6 (and possibly 5 and 5.5 - too far back to remember), have you tried setting the privacy settings to low? (Tools -> Internet Options -> Privacy Tab) Cause in IE ver 6, this is where the cookies are controlled. If you dont want to change this setting, you can add the domain (eg www.yahoo.com.au) to bypass any cookie filtering and be allowed (click edit button at bottom of Privacy Tab).

Do you know if your web browser is creating any cookies at all? Check your cookies directory and check the date of the files. It could be a corrupt cookie from Yahoo blocking that site (if there are any Yahoo cookies in the cookie directory, try deleting them manually).

I will try a few things and see if I can't re-create your problem.

cheers,
Sam.

I joined up to get access to the patrol site, got accepted then tried to sort my way through it all. Got frustrated in the end and dumped it.

This is said without any bias at all - I joined yahoo groups the other day for Magellan and Oziexplorer stuff, just to see what was out there and within only 30-60 mins of looking I was bombarded with sooooooo much in-your-face advertising that I also gave up. I admit that we have a bit of advertising on this site and we must to stay in business however I do not make you have the read pages of adverts to get to the information you requested.

For me the Yahoo groups thing was un-impressive to say the least.Regards

David, I also joined the yahoo groups for Ozi and the campertrailer group. I agree that the in-your-face advertising is a pain but I've become so habitual about just clicking the "continue to message" prompt, I hardly even notice the ads anymore.

The thing I most dislike is the way the treads are presented and the time involved to view an entire thread. Gimme ExplorOz any day.Be good, or be quick.

Steve

given that you are an ExplorOz member, do you have the site automatically logging you in? If so then its possibly a localised problem to Yahoo. I would find it rather odd for an ISP to block/filter cookies, especially from a site like yahoo.

I was just able to successfully create a new yahoo ID and seems to be letting me access all areas (mail, yahoo messenger etc).

Have you tried logging in on someone elses computer?

Sam.
