ym uses another port when entering chat rooms. you can check the squid log files if its denying some port access when you attempt to go into ym chat rooms and then allow it in squid.conf's port acl listing.

Squid is a proxy for http. I'm not sure if yahoo messenger uses http. Try a packet sniffer to be sure.
This message seems to show that everything is fine...
