    Damn, I logged on with AIM to quickly reach a friend at a public Mac, and now my screenname's in the drop-down list. I'd like to remove it, how do I do that? I tried deleting the AIM plist, but that didn't work. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hmmm I have done it before just can't remember how. Maybe you can do a quick reinstall??

    You deleted the plist while AIM wasn't running, right? Is there anything in the options? I haven't really used AIM itself (the software -- I use the protocol). :eek:

    Uhhh, I feel really dumb right now... I reopened AIM to see if the list was gone after I deleted the .plist a second time, and there it is right on the bottom of the drop down menu "delete name".

    Thanks guys... noting to see here, move along...

    Nope, that doesn't work. That only works on the Windows version.
