Odd AIM icon, what is it?

I signed on today and when my buddy list loads it plays this chirp sound and my aim taskbar icon has this odd little flashing thing on it.

I run DeadAim, and it doesn't appear on any lists that I clone.

Anyone seen it? what is it?

i downloaded that and had it for no more than 5 min before i uninstalled it and reinstalled the old version. too much extra software/spyware etc has been packaged into it.

I think on the newer versions they are adding AIM e-mail. Not sure if they do that for DeadAIM or that Triton or whatever it's called, but I think that's what it is.

Do you have AOL service?

No aol service here.

And I havn't upgraded to any new version, unless is went and installed itself.

DeadAIM ver. 4.5
over AIM ver. 5.9.3690

drktamer- That makes sense actually. The first thing I thought of when I saw the icon was "Is that an envelope? Half of one?"

You can link an email address to your aim account. That little dude means it thinks you have unread email.

It's a mailbox, notice the red flag on top and the envelope going inside of it, and it's implying that you have unread mail.
