It does store it on their server, but if ur feeling paranoid you can also sign onto AIM and go to the MyAIM menu and go to save buddy list. It will then save it as a *.blt file.

You have to create the file.

Open up AIM --> My AIM --> Save Buddy List...

it's on their servers, so if you logon at a friend's house your buddy list is there.

MSN and Yahoo! do that too.

You dont have to save it...

When I installed AIM on our new laptop it automatically had my buddies and even the alerts (although it couldnt use them since they were stored on my machnine).
