Every time I try to message someone, the little rate limit bar in the lower right of the IM window becomes all the way lit up, and I can't send messages for like 2 minutes.

I'm using AIM 4.7. Please help, I can't be without it!!!! And I don't like iChat!!

Turn off your spam bots in those chat-rooms :p

You could try adium? Or try re-installing AIM if the problem keeps reoccurring.

I've been having severe problems with adium and the aim network the past two days. My friend started having the same problems at the same time.

Its very annoying, the only way I can get online is to use AIM 4.7 which also seems to be having problems.

I hope that the problem gets sorted out soon.

If you are using the adium beta, apparently AOL did some upgrades on their servers and the beta is broken. Is has to do with the way adium requests buddy icons for a large buddy lists. The solution is to downgrade to Adium 0.89.1 for the time being.

Hope this helps.

AIM servers have been shutting down as of late. So if you had been getting random log-outs two days ago now you know.
Yup, I came home one night and my AIM screen name on iChat was logged off. :mad:
