Gaim


I just downloaded the newest GAIM. (.74). I connect to MSN and Yahoo. I also get new mail notifications from Yahoo as it's my primary mail account. However, when I click on Open Mail, nothing happens. I even tried the debug windows to see if it was logging anything and nothing.

Is anyone else having these problems and if so, what have you done about it? More importantly, have you fixed it??

Thank you.

yahoo webmail?
can't you just go to the site, bookmark it or something?
if it's a pop3, there are utils that'll check your email and sit in your system tray, or on your panel (in KDE anyway)
most will launch your email app when you click it.

as for the gaim issue, maybe you should check what your default mail client is in GNOME, as gaim uses GTk and is integrated with GNOME.

Yeah, yeah. I know, I'm just lazy!!

I have yahoo as my homepage but I was just curious why the auto launcher from gaim won't work to save me time checking my mail is all.

Btw, I run KDE so would the 2nd thing you said work??
