When I got into OSX with 10.2 and shortly after 10.3 there was Adium, Proteus and Fire. Versions of each can be found for download especially at that oldapps site, BUT....

I am wondering if any will work with Yahoo since they have changed the protocol a few times breaking older clients that use the lib Purple/Pidgen which is used to connect with Yahoo and others in Adium for sure.

I will check around and see if I can find something that will do Yahoo with the current protocol and 10.3 but don't hold your breath. If it was not for Yahoo and MSN for another changing things and breaking clients you could just use a older version of any of the 3 I mentioned above.

If your friend was using AIM I probably could find something. Even iChat works in fact in 10.3 with AIM. Tried it a few months ago on my old iMac G3. I know there are ways to get iChat to work with Yahoo via (forget the name, it's late!). I wonder if that might be a way around the Yahoo issue? I will check into that also.
