Thank you quietbritishjim for your prompt response.
OK. I entered a nickname and an alternate. I left the Username and User Information with the default entries. So far so good.
If I hover my mouse over the IRC spot at the bottom of the contacts list it states IRC irc.icq.com - online.
When I attempt to obtain the list of chat rooms the Server Name and Filename are still blank. Why can't I get Trillian to give me this list?? Stupid stupid thing
Any ideers?? (as we say in Bristol)
