You can start a conversation with an existing contact a couple different ways:- Type name or username of a contact into the search field. A conversation window will open.- Using AIM.com, click on the compose button on top of the conversation list to open a new conversation window.- Using AIM for Desktop, click on the compose button on the bottom left of the conversation list to open a new conversation window.- Click on your friend’s name in the “Recent Chats” or “Contacts” section.
If your friend is already in your contact list you can look for her or him in the search field above your recent chats.
You can view, comment and like updates from your contacts in one stream.
You can also connect your favorite social networks to updates and receive your friends’ posts right in AIM.
AOL recommends selecting IMAP in your email client, not POP3, although both are supported.
The new AIM is like a brand new supercar that has some of the old features and a whole lot more integrated into one sleek ride.This allows us to sync your messages across devices.If the other person you’re talking to is using an older version of AIM, or a third-party client, we only cache the conversation in the location you’re using it.If you turn them off, you will just see “Recent chats” and “Favorites.”.After you’ve finished racking your brains for that jumble of letters and numbers that just won’t come to you, click here.
