Since build 2668, this problem has returned. My AIM account is
labelled as ICQ and is attempted to login using ICQ credentials, which
are rejected. SIPComm tells me aim.com is rejecting my login due to too
many frequent attempts to do so. However, I can login to my actual AIM
account using pidgin just fine. This appears to be something with
SIPComm accounts shows my AIM username with (ICQ) next to it. If I
delete the account via the gui, sip-communicator.properties is updated
to remove all ICQ properties, starting with
When I walk through the gui to add a new account, a diff of the
sip-communicator.properties files shows the new account is setup as an
icq account, with
The Accounts tab in the gui shows "nickname (AIM)" whereas before it
shows "nickname (ICQ)". I can login when the gui shows "nickname (AIM)"
but not when it thinks this is an ICQ account.
I realize the underlying protocol may be the same, but obviously aim.com
doesn't think so.
