    Hi, Paul:
    No need to look for a chat program if you are Yahoo only. Go to mobile.yahoo.com and set up your Treo device. You can then use your Treo browser to get to your My Yahoo page where there is an option to chat...
    Cheers!

    yes, i've actually used the mobile.yahoo.com web interface to IM. it's not a very satisfying experience. that's why i'm looking for a decent app that will do IM as it's supposed to be.

    i'm willing to pay for a good client, but as i said, my budget is pretty tight what with the $650 for the 650...

    Hmmmm....

    Try Causerie. That's the one I use & I really love it. www.mantragroup.com I don't want to pay for a chat client either, but if you have multiple accounts or want to get on to MSN, clients are the only way to go. Good luck!

    hmm, $25 for one year. a bit steep for me. i should mention that i tried the demo, and it wouldn't connect to yahoo. oh well. i'll keep looking!

    hmmm... I use causerie to connect to aim, yahoo, msn, and jabber. You likely have something wrong with your yahoo setup.

    actually, i think yahoo may have been having auth problems when i tested it.

    be that as it may, i think i may have found my client - Mundu Interoperable Messenger. i'm trying it right now, and it's working just dandy. normally $14.95, but on sale at palmgear for $12.95 through dec 3.

    the fact that it's a one-time charge, rather than the obnoxious annual fee for the other biggies, is compelling.

    Looks like it works. (Just tried it for a little bit.) Does the full (non-trial) version remove the 2 account limit?

    I prefer the groupings and richer user environment in Causerie though.

    according to the user guide, the two account limit is there whether trial or not. they say the next version will let you use all four. doesn't matter for me as i only use yahoo.
