It seems that you can't send urself an IM using touchpad. it works on palm pre and ofcourse on Yahoo messenger. Another bug to fix...For example..i have two yahoo IM accounts...they are both in my contact list...on my palm pre...if i am signed into both accounts (one palm pre and other on desktop)...i can see both accounts online on palm pre...and i can send messages back and forth...but with touchpad...i don't see the other account online...and hence can't send the messages. I can receive it on the touchpad from the desktop. Another issue to be listed on to be fixed list.
