I'm using globally on Pidgin with Tor and have only
issues with AIM (tells me my IP has been connecting and disconnecting
too much and won't let me sign on). Not sure what problems the OP is
having as one of my 10 accounts is a Yahoo account. Sometimes it takes a
while to connect, but otherwise it's fine.
