Weird AIM problem

I'm running XP, AIM 4.8. The problem started today. Whenever I sign on, no one sees me online. I don't appear on their buddy list. Also when I go "away" they don't see me as away either. It only happens on one screename that I use and I have AIM+, when I clone and sign on as another screename I have no problems with that. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled AIM, but no dice, same problem. Does anyone know whats going on? Can anyone help? Mucho thanks in advance

hmm weird, the next thing left is that to unistall the whole thing, and re install it. save ur buddy list on a disk and load it manually. not sure if that would work but give it a try.

Did you check your AIM settings for blocking?

Yep. I"m only blocking the list of s/n's that I made. Its always been like that.

The only way I'm showing up on anyone elses buddy list is if they block then unblock me. Then once I sign off and back on they won't see me.
