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.
Within the web or desktop application, you can add AOL Mail as a service under Preferences, and we'll notify you when you get new messages.
You'll still need to go to to reply or send new messages. Start a group chat with two or more people by entering names of existing contacts in the “Start a chat with...” window to the right of your contact list (close your current chat if you don’t see this window).
Select the user you want to remove, click the chat menu, and select “Remove from contacts.” Or, in the contacts group, hover over the user you would like to remove.
An “x” should appear to the right of the user name. The new AIM logs and stores your conversation history (a month’s worth) whenever you chat with other people also using the new AIM.
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.
