Odigo beats AOL instant messaging block

Instant messaging vendor Odigo has posted a software patch on its Web site that will restore interoperability with America Online’s rival software, AOL Instant Messenger.

Last week, AOL blocked users of Odigo’s instant messaging software from exchanging messages with AIM users, according to Odigo. AOL contends that Odigo and other rival instant messaging software vendors are effectively “hacking” its system, and that blocking interoperability is a way of safeguarding AOL members from unauthorized users gaining access to their accounts.
