      You do have permission. You are authorized. People have just
      downloaded past a limit before you. Try later.

      "not authorized to view this page message"

      The only reason for this problem are the download limits that Yahoo
      has set.

      ""
      File - DOWNLOAD LIMITS.txt
      Quoted from a message by Mike Golliday, Yahoo! Groups engineer
      __________________________
      There are two limits. There is a per user limit, which is on a
      rolling 4hr
      and 24hr timeline. That is, you have a max you can download every
      four
      hours, and a daily max as well. The same applies to a group as well,
      with
      both the rolling 4hr and 24hr limits, though the limits are much
      higher than
      for an individual user. Also, we don't start counting on the per
      user limit
      until you download from a group that has reached 50% of its daily
      limit.
      There are various factors that weigh into the daily max for a group,
      but I'm
      not going to disclose them, for obvious reasons. There's a hard max
      for a
      group anyway. Note that these limits apply to all groups on the
      service.
      There's also the matter of the 'access forbidden' message that some
      people
      get. That message is what IE calls a 'friendly HTTP error message'.
      If you
      want to see the real message, go to Tools --> Internet Options -->
      Advanced.
      Go to the 'Browsing' section and uncheck 'show friendly HTTP error
      messages'. That will display the correct error message.
