Use AIM to combine Buddy Lists, too!
Authored by: russh on Jul 14, '03 11:31:38AM

I signed up my daughter for a dotmac address the very first morning they were available. As a result, she got a somewhat rare "firstname@mac.com" address. She loves it.

I noticed the other day that she was using a different name for her iChat login. I asked why and she told me that she had created all her buddy lists prior to the existence of iChat, and that it was too much trouble to re-enter all her buddies in the dotmac screename account.

AIM to the rescue: unlike iChat, AIM has an "export" feature for buddy lists. We exported the list from her old AIM screen name, logged into AIM with her dotmac screename, and imported the buddy list.

Now, when she signs into iChat under the dotmac account, all her old buddies are there.
