Me again ... I meant to put a p.s. on my message. Is there a search function here on the new forums? I was an occasional user of the old ZDNet forums and always used the search to see if my issue had been covered already. How is one supposed to find messages here? Please don't tell me that we're supposed to browse through every message!
I am a regular user of both Outlook Express & AOL IM (AIM). However, I would prefer that AIM not open every time I start Outlook Express. I've been back and forth with AOL about this issue for two weeks and have only gotten more frustrated. So I thought I'd bring my query to this group. Does anyone here know how to stop AIM from automatically opening with Outlook Express? At the suggestion of AOL's so-called "customer support", I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling AIM. I've also unchecked the "Start AIM when Windows starts" box in AIM's Sign On/Off Preferences dialog.
Any suggestions or is AIM inextricably linked to Outlook Express?
