YM file transfer problems

Two years ago I had no problems transferrng file via YM. Since upgrading to OS X, I am unable to transfer any files and get the following message

"The Yahoo Messenger service has sent the following error message: The file was not transferred. Please try again later. Thank you"

I am using YM 2.5.3 (Build 1062) and have deleted and re-installed several times.

This happens on 2 different Macs, a G-4 desktop running OS 10.2 and connecting via DSL, and a G-5 at a separate location running OS 10.4.6 and connecting via cable modem.

Numerous messages to Yahoo have brought useless canned messages and promises that a tech person will get to me-which of course has never happened.

Any help or information on this problem would be appreciated.
