    Maybe it's just me but I don't like it when software gets too connected.

    It's also possible this is a small bug.

    I've been using the New Yahoo Mail Beta for a few days now and decided that I don't want to see online IM contacts from my email screen anymore.

    Up in the top left of my yahoo mail I clicked to log the web page out of Yahoo my instant messenger :

    A few seconds later I hear the bleep bleep bleep as my Yahoo login was also logged out of my Trillian IM software.

    Really? I'm either online across the board or not? I noticed that when I logged back into my Trillian the IM didn't also come back online in the Yahoo Mail web page. No biggy, but it probably shouldn't log a user out of all software when the logout on the web page is selected.

    Yahoo only allows you to login to one place at one time. For instance if I'm connected via Y Messenger on my desktop and sign in on my iPod it kicks my desktop offline.
