Yahoo! Messenger/Mail will not work

I've been using Yahoo! Messenger (or Mail - thought it may be pertinent though I don't really care for the mail) for quite some time now without a hitch, until this v9. Ever since v9 has come out (v8 doesn't work for me either), I have been unable to connect to Yahoo! Messenger (it says my user id / password is wrong - same password works just fine on v7 and I'm 100% sure I'm entering the same one).

I also am unable to connect to login.yahoo.com and mail.yahoo.com, the former of which I would imagine is causing the problems with messenger, but I am unsure. messenger.yahoo.com works fine, but again, when I click on either sign in or sign up, it redirects to login.yahoo.com, and I get another "cannot find the server at login.yahoo.com" error.

This happens in both Firefox and IE.
Java and Flash player are up to date.

I've been banging my head on tables since they announced they were eliminating 7.x functionality. I can log in just fine with v7. Not a hitch.
Then I uninstall, install v8/v9, and attempt to log in and get the password error. This happens on no version prior to 8.0.

On a network but not behind any proxies, tried all Yahoo! Connection Preferences.

Please help, this is driving me insane.
