Re: Authorization Requests: ignore or deny?

Have you actually highlighted the line(s) in the request window before you click "block"?

Re: Add on for Adium

You've not re-installed Growl, or you've not set Adium to work with Growl through the preferences.

Re: Hide dock icon

I have a slightly different take ... I also have apps that I run from their menu without having a dock-icon — apps like Transmit, say — but when those apps are running they open a dock icon. I like that. I keep my dock hidden on the right of the screen, so at a glance with a quick movement of the mo...

Re: Font size in 1.4b19

Using Minimal_mod, Blue vs Black, Optima Regular 12 ... no problems at all. :grin:

Edit: On first re-opening, I did have to reset the font and the colour combination, but the former worked instantly and the latter when I closed Adium and re-started it ... not unexpected.

Re: MSN messages from contacts fail to deliver

Have you tried checking your account using the official MSN client? There seem to have been a number of threads recently in which people having substantially the same problem have found that way that for some reason all/nearly all/the contacts in question have somehow got blocked. This is merely a g...

Re: QQ help/advice needed

Thanks Yansun, you have encouraged me to go back and try again. I clicked on http://jihuo.qq.com and it took me to the page, I entered my user number and password, and it took me straight to the screen saying my account was active -- I didn't have to enter a new password. So I re-enabled QQ and it c...

Re: Temporary MSN server issues, July 30th 2010

I don't have a hotmail account and occasionally have login stalls ... this evening (UK time) it happened. I go to preferences, disable the account, wait a moment and then re-enable it ... usually connects without further ado.

Re: QQ help/advice needed

Heh, I was referring to the setting in the "Options" tab of the account's preferences. :) Sorry, I realised after I sent my post that that was not what you were referring to. Um Client version 2008; all the other fields are blank. I've never looked at that options tab on any account, as t...

Re: QQ help/advice needed

Only Adium in various incarnations and QQ for Mac <ugh!>. I used to use Proteus, but that didn't link to QQ. I have downloaded Trillian, but haven't yet gone through the hassle of trying to set it up. I think it was Fire! I tried once ... awful, so only for a short time and not with QQ. Apart from Q...

Re: QQ help/advice needed

I'm on Adium 1.4b18 and Tencent are still blocking me unless i use the official app. Is this something that can ever fixed for Adium? Tencent blocked me again recently. It was upgrading to 1.4b18 that made tencent pick up the alien client. It had been working fine for months, aside from the spam me...

You're welcome. Please report back if it works. :) Sorry David, no go. I've not been able to get on line for the last couple of days, so apologies for the delay in answering.

Reviving this thread as the basic problem is still there but with a new twist. Now using 10.6.2 and 1.4.18 on both my MacBook Pro 17" (Rev 1) and MacBook Air (Rev 1). Both machines are fully up to date in terms of system etc. The problem of the dock icon persisting as the green duck when I have...

On my system in ~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Users/Default/Logs/ there are folders for each of the protocols I use. They're in there.

Re: QQ help/advice needed

Thanks, yansun. You have confirmed a long-held suspicion, that the reason that my account was deemed compromised was that I had used a third-party client. For the moment, nothing has changed, and I'm not getting the spam. As for the official client, it is just so horrible that I can't bear it ... ev...

Re: QQ help/advice needed

Well, it could be, of course, but that was apparently why Tencent shut down my previous account ... it was compromised. They haven't shut down this one, but your suggestion is a good one, so I'll do that. On the other hand, I don't actually need to see myself as a contact. It doesn't happen in any o...

Re: QQ help/advice needed

Thanks for the reply, Robby. I'll try that when I have more time. In the meantime, I have a solution which is a bit of a kludge, I suspect, but it seems to be working so far ... I have simply blocked myself on QQ! B-) But I need to get a QQ contact to message me, to see that it hasn't created any ha...

QQ help/advice needed

Having resolved the problem of why Adium would not connect to QQ — Tencent, in their infinite sagacity had blocked my account saying it was insecure, so I had to open a new one — I am now plagued by the facts that: 1) when I log in to QQ, I then appear on my own contact list — annoying but not to th...
