Has Trillian fixed the Yahoo issue yet?
I was using & LOVED trillian for a few years but right around the same time of the Yahoo Email upgrade either Trillian updates their program of Yahoo did something & I could no longer access my Yahoo through the Trillian Chat.
Has anyone else had this issue? I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling it without any luck.
I recently added Digsby as an alternative because it includes Facebook & MySpace as well as all the other IM's (Yahoo, MSA, AIM) but I have only been using it for 2 days so I can't really say too much about it other than on my Dialup - It takes for ever to initially load but once its loaded up, I kinda dig it & haven't had any issues - Granted it's only been two days.
Has there been a regular chat happening with Trillian users?
Any idea on how to fix my Yahoo issue with that chat client?
