I got the following error when i tried to update a contact detail on my yahoo messenger. Am using version 9.
“The last address book operation did not succeeded due to a server error Error Code: –40031”.
To edit you can try in two ways, first one is to fix the messenger error, for this
1. Close yahoo messenger
2. Clear Cache – Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\cache (Change the drive letter if u installed in a different drive). If you are using 64 bit operating system try C:\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\cache and delete all the contents in the folder.
3. Start messenger again
Try again to make changes, it will be working normally, but if it is not done try again,. If failed again, you may avoid messenger and try other way to solve the contact details.
a. Go to yahoo mail account
b. Edit the contact using the address book section
c. Check with messenger (restart messenger first), if it is not showing the changes done, do the steps one to four (1-4) and the changes will be visible on your yahoo messenger.
