#14881 closed defect (duplicate)

AIM/OSCAR needs to imply when using . or _

Reported by: MichaelKthx Owned by: rekkanoryo
Milestone: Component: AIM
Version: 2.10.1 Keywords:


(5:33:18 PM) Unable to add the buddy [screenname with dots] because the username is invalid. Usernames must be a valid email address, or start with a letter and contain only letters, numbers and spaces, or contain only numbers.

I got that when trying to add buddies with periods or underscores in their screenname. The official AIM client supports such names now. A work around is to append manually to their screenname.
