DMARC and a legacy email account on AIM (AOL).com

I have had an AIM.com email account (That's AOL Instant Messenger -AIM, for all you young folks) since 1999. It is brain dead simple email service, which is why I have kept it so long. It doesn't try to reorder your messages or roll them up into streams. I know, I am a Luddite. But in the past two weeks AOL has reset its DMARC policies to do with alias spoofing and now all my email is being rejected by major carriers like Gmail. Reason being, my address is eaglehound@aim.com, and the outgoing server is at AOL.com. I have poked around the site for awhile, but can't find any obvious fixes. I wrote to AOL.com, but have not received a reply yet. Has anyone else faced and fixed this problem?

Are there good jabber gateways for AIM and MSN?

I've realized that jabber gateways are the only realistic option for AIM and MSN support on my phone. Any recommendations for good stable jabber gateways to AIM and MSN? I'd imagine it's best using a jabber account actually on the gateway's server rather than going through google talk, no? Any other caveats about jabber gateways? [more inside]

Reuniting with a headmaster for an expensive school in Australia named Ron..

I'm looking for a forgotten chat-friend from over 10 years ago. All I remember is that his first name is Ron, and he was a headmaster at a school in eastern Australia, got to drive a Aston Martin as a work benefit, and once took a group of students to visit America in the Seattle area. He gave me some advice that I later took up, and would like to tell him how much of a difference (good) it's made. [more inside]

Do IM bouncers/proxies exist?

I've been using an IRC bouncer (more info for the uninitiated) for a bit now to allow me to connect from whichever computer I happen to be using - or even more at the same time. I'd like to do the same for the AOL and MSIM accounts I use. Googling AIM bouncer and AIM proxy don't seem to provide much direction though.

Dumping AIM

So, now I want to dump AOL Instant Messenger, and convince all of my friends and relatives to do the same. I want something that isn't too fly-by-night, so I can be sure it'll last, and it's gotta have a little higher usability-quotient than I recall ICQ ever having. Ease of use on-par with AIM (so non-tech-savvy family can install it and set it up) is important, too. Any suggestions?
