Incorrect password asked every time

Asked by madwoollything on 2007-05-15

I've created a new account and password following the on screen instructions, however, every time I try to launch the account I get an error message saying that I have an incorrect password.

I've tried to create different account names and tried setting up different passwords ..... the result is the same each time.

Ian,

What type of accounts are you trying to create (AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, Jabber)? Depending on the network usually you already have to have a valid account in order to "add" it to GAIM. There are exceptions to this depending on the protocol in use but it generally is the case.

Here are a few webpages you can use to register for various account names. Once you have registered an account on an IM network you should be able to add it to GAIM.
http://www.aim.com (click on "Get a Screen Name")
https://www.icq.com/register/
http://www.yahoo.com/r/m7

Does this help?
