Imran,
Make sure you can connect to scs.yahoo.com port 5050. The ISA Server might be restricting access to that port. I'm not sure about the http proxy support for yahoo messenger. I do recall a thread on the forum some time back where a specific mode of ISA Server was suggested that made the server act as a NAT server allowing unhindered access.

P.S. Please don't overload one question with 3 others. It tends to sidetrack the thread quite a bit. Please post each distinct/unrelated question as a seperate post (it's just another row in the mysql table, you know :).

Imran,
Are you using any client side app on Windows to access the internet? Like the ISA Proxy client etc?
