Can anyone explain to me how to use the AIM option to contact a member? It is shown in their profile however I have been unable to understand how to use it. It sends me to imessage...I've never use this before.
Thank you

and yes, I sent a message here but have had no reply.

Itís a legacy AOL messaging system now ranked just behind smoke signals in user count

this was moved to the vanagon forum as most the vanagon folks have AIM accounts?

I believe it was moved FROM the Vanagon Forum as it's an overall web site question

Wow, what a blast from the past!

AOL shut down their AOL Instant Messenger service in 2017. Such a sad thing, cause it was such a huge part of my life from the mid-90's through the mid 2010's. I actually worked at AOL for quite a bit too, so it was integral to business communication back then too.

Maybe Everett can add something to people's profiles like iMessage for iPhone users and whatever the Android user have?

Yes, I could change it to be something else instead.

What would be a link that would open iMessage or whatever?
Maybe a username/account name there makes more sense.
