Yahoo Messenger, an instant messenger client, is one way for you to communicate directly with your employees or clients; however, there may come a time when you no longer wish to converse with someone. When this occurs, you can block the person, adding him to your ignore list. Yahoo Messenger offers a way to view a complete list of every contact you add to this ignore list.

Click "Messenger" at the top of the Yahoo Messenger program.

Select "Preferences" from the drop-down menu.

Click "Ignore List" from the Category list on the left of the window to view your list of blocked contacts.


Alternatively, you can press "Ctrl-Shift-P" to open the Preferences window.
