    When logged in, not all of my buddies that are online are shown to be online. Sometimes I get messages from buddies who have been online for hours and prior to their message they were not shown as online.

    Any Idea why?

    Maybe they blocked you ;)

    Try reinstalling AIM or something like that.

    Are you running the newest client and have you tried re-installing?

    I believe that there is(or was) a limit on how many people can see a screenname online. I was thinking that it was around maybe 800 "watchers" or something, I remember that it used to say this in my status box when I connected to aim using trillian. There is also a limit to how many people you can have on your buddy list at one time also. When I used trillian and exceeded this it would just glitch and not show some people online when I knew they were on.

    Does AIM have the same option as Yahoo?....
    To be online Invisible?...I know when on Yahoo and I get Messages from
    People on my list their Icon still reports they are Offline.....I get the active
    message and can speak to them but when I enter my message the window pops
    up that says they are offline...but they are still live and let me know they are
    invisible.....I am thinking that AOL has the same pref.
