Triton Beta 3

Triton beta 3 was released today at
Highlights of the new build:
* Performance has improved substantially (we will continue to focus on this)
* AOL Radio integration (really well done)
* Save screenname and password (finally!)
* Plugins! (will post about this very soon)

As always, please continue to send me your comments, positive or negative (keeping in mind this is still a beta). Outside perspectives are really interesting to us.

More on IMAP/SMTP settings

I was having trouble sending mail with my account, but fortunately I was able to walk down the hall and talk with the head of mail development, who informed me of the error of my ways...

You must use for sending mail, NOT On the IMAP side, you should use, although will still work. When I made this change, things worked fine for me.

He also mentioned that SSL/TLS is a work in progress, so you might be able to use SSL/TLS for your SMTP and IMAP - but you might not.

And Blogging for All...

AOL management has given the official OK for employee blogging... hope I helped influence that decision. Now you can read several other employee blogs, including Greg, an engineer on my team (AIM architecture), and a different Justin, an engineer on the Boxely team (UI toolkit). Greg's blog has had a lot of updates already, so it obviously means he is less busy than I am. I will have to talk to him about that :)

We also recently opened up blogging for AIM users... you can get your AIM blog, or read other AIM users' blogs, here.

350 Buddies...

We've now raised the limit to 350 buddies on your buddy list... and we're not done yet.

Responding to those who asked about SMTP settings for AIM Mail: supposedly you can use, port 587, with your AIM user name and password - but I had problems with this. I've asked some folks on our mail team to look into it.
