@johnsymester: Why can't we just answer any of the security questions that we setup when we first created the AIM screen name? I don't want to create a new screen name, I want my old one back that I had since high school since all my old friends are stll on it.

When you enter an invalid password, AIM displays an error message. In the error message window, click More Info. After your browser opens to the Lost Password Web Site, enter your screen name, and click Submit. Your password will be sent to the most current e-mail address we 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 us 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. Also, if your AIM screen name is the same as your AOL screen name, then you can sign onto AOL with that screen name and go to Keyword: AIM PASSWORD.

How to renew an iPod Touch AIM


<p>The iPod Touch's built-in wireless adapter lets you operate the equipment for the Internet functions based on multiple, including the use of instant messengers such as AOL Instant Messenger. As your computer, your AIM buddy list is usually updated automatically to reflect their friends in real-time signals. If not, manually update AIM to see who is online and available to chat. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod Touch to the Internet. Touch the "Settings", then "Wi-Fi and tap the name of a nearby network -. Enter a password If you need one - and tap" Join ". <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Touch the "App Store" application and click the "Browse" button in the lower right corner of the screen. Tap your finger on the type of the "Search" on "AIM" and tap "Search". Tap the "Install" button next to the MSN application to install it on your iPod Touch, if you have not done so. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Open the "target" application and enter your username and password. Touch the round "Arrow" button in the upper right corner of the screen to manually update your list of friends. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Press the iPod touch "Home" button to close the AIM and then again on "AIM" icon to reopen if the refresh button does not work. As is the case with AIM on your computer, the AIM application for the iPod Touch periodically stop working, especially if it is open for a long time. <br />

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.

CANT ACCESS MY AIM ACCOUNT IT SAYING INVALID PASSWORD I KNOW IT IS THE RIGHT PASSWORD MY AIM IS IAMKAONASIS


If you are sure that the password is correct, then type your password in a text editor, then copy it and paste in your password box of AIM. There could be some problem with the keys which will be clear to you, once you type in your text editor.

MY YAHOO MESSENGER HAS BEEN LOKED.PLS HELP ME TO OPEN MY YAHOO.-


The best attempt to unlock your ID is, try to login not by yahoo messenger, but by mail of yahoo which has a same user name and password that been locked. Sometime, this step worked, but make sure after your login to yahoo mail and success, you have to change your password with new password, and then you can login to yahoo messenger with new password that you just been created.

If you try to send a complain to the contact of yahoo messenger, It will useless. Yahoo doesn’t care what happen to your if you go locked.

To protect your ID or to prevent Lock ID, you must have a strong password. I will suggest you to not chat with your primary email in yahoo messenger. Sometime yahoo makes a prohibition to some of ID. This mean your ID can be banned by yahoo and your ID never be join to yahoo messenger or yahoo email again.

To create a strong password you must use all character who listed in your keyboard. Such as uppercase, number, and symbol. You must be create password which have not less 8 character or more.

Here I give you an example a strong password: H4rP3 ^&* (with 3 space on it). To make a better password work well, you have to change your password frequently: 3 week or 3 month, depending how strong and important your password is.

Ive had an older version of messenger for mac. one day it told me i couldnt use this version so i installed version 3 beta (178870) from yahoo for mac OS and it i used it no problem a few times... suddenly...


The new beta is so buggy that I have stopped using it at all.

Try using Adium. It does Yahoo, AIM, MSN and others all in one, plus it's free.
