How to connect GAIM in Windows


Hello Guys,

Have any of you configured gaim under win2k. My system at work is Win2k, and I want to use gaim instead of yahoo messenger. I've downloaded and installed gaim, but it does not connect to the Yahoo server. It always returns saying that an authentication error occurred.

Any suggestions?

get the newest version. you should be reguarly checking their site http://gaim.sf.net , possibly more than any other as the official servers for yahoo!, msn etc.. keep being modified to prevent 3rd party clients access.

I use gAIM as well, and I think it rocks!

I use it for AOL Instant Messaging.
