Hey all

I've just started using Empathy IM client, connected my gmail and yahoo accounts to it, no problems or so I thought. Turns out, it looks like my yahoo contacts are never online, even when they are. However, even if I know someone is online but Empathy doesn't show them as being online, I can't initiate a conversation. If they initiate it, I can reply, but my online status is also suspect most of the time. Empathy works just fine with Gmail, is the Yahoo thing a known problem / does anyone know a solve or work-around for it?
