Gaim/msn


Does anyone know how to change the name that other people on MSN see you as using GAIM. Whenever I try it it doesnt update, it works fine with Kopete or AMSN but i really dont like those compared with GAIM.

You mean the alias thing in the account options? Works for me, changes when I change it.
