29 January 2002 - AOL Connection Issues.
Many of you reported difficulty connecting to AOL this morning, and the fix is to go into your preferences (Prefs->AIM->Misc) and turn off the "Activate SecureIM Capabilities" feature.
NOTE: If you still cannot login and receive a "you've logged in too many times" error, wait 5-10 minutes for the flag to clear on the servers.
We are working on re-activating SecureIM as soon as possible. Note that it appears to still work under ICQ at the moment.
Our apologies for the inconvenience.
