Yahoo Messenger web interface? Ugh.

Yahoo! has stopped supporting Yahoo Messanger for Mac. I don't know why but that's not relevant.

Instead they make you use their web-based client which isn't too bad. However it does have 2 problems:

1. I have 1 account with 3 aliases. I can't tell which alias someone is chatting to when they send to me. Can anyone tell me how to figure this out?

2. The web client doesn't support sending files. This is ok because I can use other systems to send files.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix the first issue?

Is there any reason you can't use Adium? https://adium.im/

I'm not sure whether it would solve the "3 aliases" thing, though.

I'm pretty sure they don't want the first issue fixed - in the new world order. I'm pretty sure they want separate account per name. (That's my issue too.)

Yes, but I have a lot of friends that only know about one alias or the other. Creating a new account and moving half my friends with it would be... impossible.
