  •[your-Yahoo-ID]&m=a      –> this will return plain text, like this “[your-Yahoo-ID] is NOT ONLINE
  •[your-Yahoo-ID]&m=a&t=1  –> this will return plain text, Like this 00(ZERO ZERO)[Offline] or 01(ZERO ONE)[Online]

  1. Hi,

    I tried to do what you have written above.
    I pasted that url onto my browser address bar, and it returned wrong result for some yahoo IDs.
    My yahoo was online but it was detected as offline. Any configuration in my yahoo profile causing this ‘wrong’ result?
    Please advise.
