Subject: japanese yahoo messenger support?
I have got another question: I've got a japanese girlfriend who uses
yahoo.co.jp messenger. Everytime I try to locate and save her contact
information into gaim, it says, this account wouldn't be accessible. Is
it, that the "yahoo" supported is just the german/english yahoo?
How could I add a yahoo.co.jp account?
