Hi, i own a Mac Mini and have recently been trying to download Aim/AOL for Mac. I have tried a lot but it just comes up as an audio thing for Quicktime Player. Can anyone help or send me a link?

I take it the file has a .SIT extension? If so you need the Free version of Stuffit Expander. It extracts Stuffit files. AIM for the Mac is so old they still use the old Stuffit format.

I would suggest though you try iChat or AdiumX instead as AIM for the Mac is so old and crashes a lot and AOL will not even update it and has not for years now.


If you still want to mess with AIM, here is Stuffit.

Be sure to get the Free Stuffit Expander.

Adium is great, as for the StuffIt suggestion, I recommend The Unarchiver.

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
