BT Yahoo Mail - Unexpected Tab Appearing

Hi, Smiley Happy

 

Every time I open my e-mail account using BT Yahoo Mail an unexpected and uninvited tab appears next to the 'Contacts' tab.  On the tab it says "tasty_waterfall63" and because I'm concerned it might be phishing, I hastily click the x to close it.  A pop-up then appears saying that I have unsent messages and do I really want to close the conversation.  I obviously click 'yes'.  Does anyone know what it might be and how I get rid of it please?

 

Many thanks.

Its just someone trying to contact you via Yahoo messenger, probably someone trying to sell you something. Just ignore it, and make sure your status is set to "invisible to everyone", then they cannot see you are online.

Hi communiverse and welcome

 

(been a long while since I read anything like this)

 

I assume you don't need to use Yahoo Messenger? - it sounds like one of them random invites from a user that bombards many other random users!

 

Via your BTYahoo home page, click on "Hi x" in the upper left hand corner, sign out of messenger and also mark yourself as invisible.

 

Should do the trick.
