Pidgin can't work miracles.  If the gmail service doesn't allow access 
to AOL buddies from a gmail account, neither can Pidgin.  You will need 
an AOL account logged in.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
