AOL Instant Messenger Tab
The Screen Name means the AOL Instant Messenger screen name for your AIM account. Some names are still untaken, and it makes sense to go ahead and get yours. Just use the Click Here button at the bottom to got to AOL and get an account. It is free, and clicking the button will take you to http://www.aol.com/ the sign up is quick and easy.
Your Password should not be the same as your PowWow password. It should be something that no one can guess for your security. Do not use nicknames as passwords or dates or easily guessed syntax. Remember your Password and write it down. The "Log on at startup" checkbox is for automatically also logging on to AIM whenever you start PowWow.
In PowWow users may now have AIM buddies on their buddy lists. First you must have an account with AIM. Once you have established your AIM account then get some friends to buddy up with you in AIM. It is necessary to actually SAVE the AIM buddy list. To save buddy list (in AIM Messenger) go to File / Save Buddy List. Save the yourfile.btl file in C:\Program Files\AIM95\yourfile.btl. Go to File / Load Buddy List, browse for C:\Program Files\AIM95\yourfile.btl and click Save.
To IMPORT AIM buddy list into PowWow: go to options / configuration / preferences / AIM Tab, enter AIM Screen Name and Password. Click Import AIM Buddies and browse to C:\Program Files\AIM95\yourfile.blt and click Open.
