Summary: Unable to add Buddy

Initial Comment:
I am running GAIM V1.5.0 on Windows XP. I can't add a
buddy to my AIM account. The other accounts I use
(Yahoo and Jabber) don't have this problem. I get the
usual error message about too many buddies (I'm not
near the limit) then the name appears to add, but it's
invalid...I'm unable to send or receive IMs. This is a
recurrent problem--I can send you the specific names
affected if that would be helpful. Please let me know
if additional info is necessary. 

Thanks.

It's likely that this is fixed in Pidgin MTN now, and it should be fixed
in Pidgin
2.0.0, once it's released.

It's definitely a problem with Gaim's AIM/ICQ protocol
plugin, so the other protocols aren't relevant.  I think it
has something to do with trying to add a buddy to a group
that doesn't exist.  Normally the group would be created
automatically, but it seems like it isn't.

What is the exact error message you get?

Nope. Nor does the group composition matter (default or user
created, empty or crowded).

But again the Gchat option worked perfectly. One of the
buddies I couldn't add under the AIM account also has Gmail,
and that inclusion worked exactly like it is supposed to.

Thanks again for trying on this. I hope a solution can be
devised or discovered--the problem is incredibly frustrating!!

Are you able to add buddies if you put them in a new group?
