Thanks for the reply, but, I'm sorry, I don't quite follow. I looked around=
in aim, newest non-beta version, on my windows pc, but couldn't find the=20
"current aol user" option. Where is it exactly? AIM does seem to know that=
I'm a member because when I signed on for the first time, it automatically=
added my aol inbox to the mail checker feature.

Just create a new "AIM / ICQ" account, enter your AOL user name and password,
