    It says password is incorrect and when I have it sent, it doesn't arrive in my email. Tried to start a new account. It seems to work until I try to use it, then I get the same message

When you forget both password and login screename there isnt much you can do. Most times you just hav to start over with a new account but sometimes if you go to aim.com and click find buddies or search profiles you can fill out your name gender age and all of that stuff and it will pull up a list of screenames under the things you put down that match. most times you can find your screename there and sign in with it and click forgot password and follow the steps after that. however if it doesnt get sent to your email then i reccomend updating your email version and also aim version. also if you type in your email address and it doesnt math the original one that you put down wen you first made your account it wont send it so be sure you used the right one! hope i helped

How can i get on aim


First, you'll need to go to http://www.aim.com/ and click on the orange Download AIM button. Once you have downloaded and either saved the file and run it later by double clicking the file name, or by running it directly when prompted, once it is installed, you'll have to create a "screen name" (the name you'll want people to know you by--an alias of sorts) and a password (something secure--it's best to mix upper and lower case letters and include at least one number, but make sure it's something you'll be able to remember--NEVER give out your password to anyone!). After its checked your screen name against others already in the system, to make sure there aren't any duplicates, you're ready to go. All you need to now is add your friends' screen names and to give them yours. Happy Messenging!

Having trouble with password i am a new aim user every time i put password in says invalid help


If your password doesn't work
There are several reasons why your password might not work:
  • The password you entered isn't capitalized correctly. AIM passwords are case-sensitive, so if your password is "Password," entering "password" (note the lowercase "p") won't work.
  • (For AOL subscribers only) You've recently changed your AOL password and are trying to use your new password with the AIM service. Even if your AOL screen name is also your AIM screen name, changing the password for one doesn't affect the other.
You can have your password sent to your e-mail address by submitting your screen name at the following Web page: http://www.aol.com/aim/password.adp.

How do you make an aim


Go to www.aim.com and click the link 'Get a screen name' in green letters on the right side of the screen, near 'Mail'. After you create your screen name, either download the latest AIM (I highly recommend it) or just do AIM express. Have fun! vote for me

I have a old aim account that I have not used in ahile. I dont remember my password and says it has sent me a new one via email. The email I provided to aim has been deleted


Your password will be sent to the most current e-mail address that they have on record for your screen name. If you have changed your e-mail address and did not notify the AIM system of that update, then your password will still be sent to your old e-mail address. If this occurs and you are no longer able to access e-mail at your old address, then there is no way for them to inform you of your AIM password. In this case, you must register another screen name by choosing on the Sign On screen, and then clicking Sign On. Therefore, if you are planning to change your e-mail address, update your new address in AIM before you delete the old e-mail account.

HI MY NAME IS KRYSTAL. AND I HAVE A PROBLEM LOGGING ON TO MY EMAIL ADDRESS RSYAL2@AIM.COM. I BECAUSE I DON'T REMEMBER MY PASSWORD CAN U HELP ME LOG ON MY EMAIL ADDRESS


Go back to your email at aim.com and click on "forgot password" under the "Enter Password" space.
You will be asked a few questions, including your "alternate email address" when you signed up for aim.
Remeber ... was it a Yahoo or Hotmail account? or another aim address?
Go to AIIM now and try again.

I don't want AIM or AIM pro to come on automatically.


ok When you turn on your computer and it autimaticaly logs you in you need to log yourself out and then on the screen where you put your user name and password, there will be a little box thats says, save my password and there will be another one that says sign me in automaticaly. Uncheck the one that says sign you in autimaticaly. If you want to use your vidioe camera you dont need aim pro unless you have a mac then the vidioe set up process is a little for complicated
