    You can hack the registry:

    Close AIM
    Click Start > Run the type regedit and press Enter.
    Look for this registry key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\America Online\AOL Instant Messenger(TM)\CurrentVersion\Buddy\MaxBuddies
    Change the default value from 200 to whatever number you want.


    This won't work on 4.3 or earlier.

    But I have also heard that AIM will autocorrect this when you sign back on. Thats my best shot!

    And AIM didn't correct it after you signed on and off again? Wow. It might just take time before the AIM server updates it back but I hope it works for good!
