I am a Linux user (Ubuntu/Xubuntu 10.04 64bit) and hoped that Jitsi
would be a Linux alternative to Yahoo Messenger on Windows.
Unfortunately I can't login with the credentials I use on Windows.
This has led me to wonder if the Yahoo login has been written to cater
for the entire family of Yahoo logins, rather than just @yahoo.com.
There was a tie up between BT (British Telecom) some years back which
seems to mean that all BT accounts are also valid for use with Yahoo
Messenger. The account I use is @talk21.com, (I login to email via
uk.yahoo.com), others I am aware of are @btinternet.com and
@btopenworld.com there may be more.
Any ideas anybody???
