Instant Answer (IA) is an incredibly useful tool for answering AOL Instant Messages when you're away from your computer. At the very basic level, Instant Answer is an answering machine for Instant Messages.
Not only can you change what message is sent by IA, but you can create different messages for different people. Leave one message that only friends will receive, leave another for family, and even ignore certain people. IA sports a brand new interface that makes setting up different messages extremely easy.
IA 2.0 also allows the creation of different "sets" of preferences. You can create a set for when you're out to lunch, a set for the office, etc. And switching between sets is extraordinarily easy.
IA 2.0 works with America Online version 4.0 and 5.0. It will not work with AIM (America Online Instant Messenger); you must have an AOL account to use it. The full version is available at a cost of $20.
What's new in this version:
Tons of new features; customized messages for different people, a new preferences screen, and much more.
