I have constant problems with the built in chat client. There is a large list of problems but in summary:
* You can't have more than one gtalk account setup. Only one of them will work at a time and it appears to be random as to which.
* Often I can't sign in, it simply refuses even to try. As in no spinning circle or anything. And yes that is with a fully working internet connection.
* Accounts say they are signed in but are not really, sometimes even while signed off and showing offline it will have some "ghost" contacts showing online.
* This morning I was sending messages but not receiving any. I didn't realise until I signed into the proper Yahoo client on my PC and got flooded with the responses.
The only way I have found to temporarily fix most of the above is to completely remove the account in question and re-add it. Although this didn't fix the yahoo problem this morning.
does anyone know if we connect directly to the IM services or is it via a Palm/HP proxy?
