    Unhappy Aim
    I just got my Mac two weeks ago, and so far I've downloaded AIM.. however, when I try to use it, it often turns off randomly (AIM, not the computer) and I have to relaunch it. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem and/or how to fix it?

    Yes. It's AIM, and it does that.

    Use iChat with our AIM account.

    What's causing the problem is that AIM for Mac sucks...hard.

    I would suggest either using the included iChat or download a program called Adium.

    I dont no about AIM but i no that msn dose the same thing and then says about 5 mins after sending the odd couple of messages it says this message could not be delivered. That is really annoying when people think I am ignoring them and when i think i have sent about 5 messages and they only receive one it gets very confusing.

    Just use Adium, it handles MSN and AIM and many other protocols as well.
    Plus, it has loads of add-ons and is completely customizable in terms of look and style.

    AdiumX is the best. But you'll have to revert to iChat to use video chat.
    schweb This has to be one of the best threads ever in MF history...
    Cherokee This gets my vote for most innovative thread on Mac-Forums... ever.
