Default Instant Messaging with 2 names

Is there a way to run YIM when you have two ID's and different friends under each name that you want to chat with?

Couldn't you do it by using another messenger such as Trillian, having one id logged into trillian and the other YIM?

The only other way that I can think of doing it, is trying to get two instances of YIM up and running.

Steff how do you do that with MSN??

You could just connect to Trillian. It allows you to be on two accounts of the same network.

Just get Trillian. You can use several different accounts at once (not sure what the limit is), all in the same program. You can also use different networks at the same time (AIM, Yahoo, MSN, IRC, etc.). I'm surprised Yahoo hasn't already added this feature to its own messenger. AIM has had this for a while now.
