I’m sure that most of you have used yahoo messenger at some point in your life. It was one of the best instant-messaging clients developed by yahoo, if you watch my video’s on my channel you know that I made a video from a year ago explaining how you can patch yahoo to use it again in the escargot server. the problem that escargot removed yahoo and how you can patch so I found the solution about how to run yahoo Messenger in 2022, I will explain all things in this article. if you like to see the full video about this article click me.
note: This method work only with the registered account on the Escargot server, not the old Yahoo original accounts so if you are trying to log into your old account using this method it will not work.
1. How do we use yahoo messenger Again?
A. Creating an account on the escargot/ Nina server
we need to log in to Nina’s server to create an account press register you can see this part in my video about how to create an account on Nina’s website.
you need to select a screen name to create a yahoo or MSN account so be careful about this step!
then add your date of birth below and click continue
B. Register your account
after completing the first step above you need to add your screen name for example I add something as a screen name then you must add a valid email to receive the confirming email
after that add your password then click register.
as you see your account has been created!
now open your email you will find a massage from Nina’s website just click on Activate your account.
after clicking on Activate your account you will get this page you may log in to your account if you like!

select Yahoo Messenger then select English.
you can select your yahoo ver. 6.0 or 5.5 or 5 also you may select the patch ver. it’s easier
I select the 6.0 patched ver.

Thank you so much for this info.
I just travelled through the time machine. I and my wife (back then- a friend) used yahoo messenger for chatting. We were in two different countries. We’re together now, yet, this messenger just brought back all my feelings. Made us both nostalgic.
I thought this was gone forever.
Thanks a lot for bringing back memories.
you are Wellcome
