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?

If you have a normal yahoo account, then no. If you have a yahoo japan
acount, then you can check the Yahoo Japan check box under Show More
Options, and things should just work. Yahoo! and Yahoo! Japan seem to be
seperate IM networks that happen to use the same protocol, like IRC's
freenode and efnet.
