Instant Messenger File Transfer to MAC from a PC

Hi There,

I am using Yahoo Instant Messenger on my MAC PowerBook G4.  My friends have PCs.  When they try to send me a file through IM, I get a message saying "File Tranfer Failed".  Anyone know what to do so that I can receive and then read the attached file?

Maybe try Yahoo customer service... this is a software development forum.

Is it Mac OS X?

Maybe try another client, such as Adium.

Firewall problem, maybe?

Try rapidly switching your machine on and off for a minute or two.
