Hi, on your BES have you disabled the IBS browser and\or other message services via IT Policy?

I assume your carrier support Yahoo Messenger so try the following:

1. On the device go to Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table > Press menu > Select Register Now

2. Go to Options > Advanced Options > Applications > highlight Yahoo > Press menu > Select Edit Permissions > Ensure Connections is set to Allow.

First I would try creating a blank policy and assign it to a test user.  If this still fails contact your service provider to see if they support the Yahoo messenger.  You can try downloading the provider\rim service books by going to Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table > Press menu > Select register Now.
