    Trillian. It allows me to be on several Yahoo! accounts at once and receive email notifications for each of them.

    Voted none. How ever when I did dabble with IM`s several years ago to assist people with PC problems I used Trillian. Worked well with most\all other IM`s, what ever the Client happened to be using.

    I'm using MSN Messenger, Skype and Xfire every single day.
    Although I do have AIM and Yahoo messenger installed, I almost never use it.

    I've got it installed in case anyone wants to contact me, but doesn't have MSN/Skype at his disposal.

    Voted None.

    I do have ICQ, Yahoo, MSN and AIM accounts but rarely use them.

    ICQ was the first and that was years ago.

    OOPs! I guess I should have voted Pidgin as I have that installed. :)

    Skype + Yahoo Mess (old version LoL) No problems at all. I simply will not upgrade to latest Yahoo Messenger, too vulnerable plus heavy, the old Y Messenger still communicates and thats all that matters for me.
