Are you trying to add an @gmail.com buddy to your Yahoo account's buddy
list? If so, do you know that that @gmail.com account is a valid Yahoo
account? (Does Yahoo even support such a thing?)

You cannot add random email addresses to your Yahoo (or MSN, etc.)
accounts.

If you are trying to add it to some other account's buddy list then tell
us what protocol that account is on, exactly what error you are seeing and
where, and what the Help->Debug Window says when you try to add the buddy.
