    I just switched over to Adium, I really like it except that when I switched I decided to do some cleaning and delete like 100 buddies. When ever I restart my machine adium puts them all back on and its kind of pissing me off. Anyone know whats going on?

    Is there an option to have it update the server or something like that? Just guessing off the top of my head, as I'm an iChat+Chax user.

    Yeah I just switched from chax yesterday. I thought it would take me a while to get used to a new program but I have to say I already love it and can't imagine switching back. This is the only problem I have been having...hopfully I'll figure it out.

    Thanx for the input but I can't find any option like that.

    did you highlight their name on your contact list, then on the top menu bar

    contact --> remove contact (or apple+backspace)

    or are you saying that after you did this and restarted they showed back up again?

    Are they still up under another screen name if you have multiple names?

    I've had this same problem as well. I'd remove an annoying contact, thinking I wouldn't show on their messager. Then they start messaging me a couple days later :mad:

    Nope, this is the only screen name I've had since I was like 15. I've been all over the internet trying to figure out what the problem is.

    Yep, mine does that as well, and it pisses me off... I have found after 4 or 5 times of deleting them, they will be gone permanently.

    Don't get AIM, just try iChat to delete them.
