Yahoo Mail doesn't log you out of chat when you cloes the Yahoo Mail window.
- I've been noticing lately that if I'm logged into Yahoo Mail's chat
and just close the page's tab, then if I go back to the mail page
without about 15 to 30 minutes, I'm not automatically logged back into
chat. I figured that it took a while for the chat to log out after I
closed the Yahoo Mail page.
Today I was over at someone's house and I noticed that when they were
in Yahoo Mail, it showed that I was online. Well considering my PC
had been off for over 12 hours, this wasn't correct. I logged into
Yahoo Mail on another machine and it logged into chat. I then logged
out and I disappeared off the online list of my friend.
From my testing I've found that once you log into chat on Yahoo Mail,
you will still show online after closing the web browser unless you do
one of the following:
1. Sign out of chat.
2. Log out on the mail page.
If you don't do either of those 2, you'll be online forever. I'm
pretty sure this isn't the way it used to be.
