iCloud Drops Support for Third-Party AIM Clients

Dan Moren:

Thanks to enhanced security that Apple has put in place as of July 1, folks with those specific [] usernames can no longer connect to the AIM service with clients other than Messages running on OS X 10.7.2 or later.


If you don’t want to upgrade your version of OS X or switch to Messages, your alternative is to create a new AIM account. Of course, that requires that you re-construct your buddy list, which may be a not insignificant amount of work.
