A tiny little bit of Google research tells me Trollheart is right.

The form alright is a one-word spelling of the phrase all right. Alright is commonly used in written dialogue and informal writing, but all right is the only acceptable form in edited writing. Basically, it is not all right to use alright in standard English.

Technically "alright" isn't officially a word but it's used differently to "all right" and so Trollheart is functionally wrong.

Using "all right" in this circumstance would insinuate that multiple things are correct, whereas "alright" would indicate that something is okay. Clearly you are using the second meaning so "alright" makes sense.

Neither are words. The correct word is Yes. Yeah is also acceptable. Yep and Yup are both as bad as each other. Not to mention yop.
