How do I exit Yahoo! Messenger?

Hit the left soft key “Options” and scroll to Exit which is the last menu item. Hit ok

You will then be presented with 2 ways to exit Yahoo Messenger

1. Exit and stay signed in: this allows you to retain your current presence status but continue to use other functionality within your phone such as sending an SMS or MMS. When you have a new IM arrive you will be notified by an SMS that will pop up on your handset and inform you that you have a new IM and autolaunch you into the IM client.
2. Sign off from Yahoo!: this means that you will be permanently exited from Y! Messenger until you sign back in again therefore you will appear offline to your contacts.

Can I exit the application and remain logged in so people can still contact me via IM?

Yes you can exit the application so as to use other function on your phone and remain logged in. This means that when someone tries to contact you via IM you will receive a pop screen informing you that someone has tried to contact you and will direct you back to the IM

I am not sure about what you want to do by "blocking." Could you explain your need in more detail or give examples is the earlier reply does not help?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
