    I created an AIM account for my brother about a month ago on, but now when he opens iChat he gets a dialogue asking for his password for the screen name. The password is correct, but it almost looks like the account has "disappeared"...

    Anyone know what's wrong?

    Your brother is using the wrong username or password or both.

    Wow MisterMe! That was really helpful! If you would have read my post and I quote "The password is correct"!!!!

    The username and password have not changed and this has been verified by looking at the AIM entry in the keychain!!

    Something is either wrong with the AIM service or accounts that are inactive for more than 2 weeks are removed!

    Anyone else?
