Question Gaim logging incorrect password

Hello everyone. I'm a Linux newbie and there is probably an easy fix to my problem. When I create an account with Gaim using my current information with yahoo messenger (screen name and password) It tries to connect, but an error occurs and the message states "incorrect password". This is absolutley not the case. I am 100% positive that I am entering the correct password. I have deleted the account and tried it several times and it still doesn't work, does anyone have any ideas?

what version of Gaim do you have installed? the latest is 0.82. The password problem existed in the older versions ... can't exactly recollect which.
