AT&T Corp.'s WorldNet Internet service Wednesday revived the battle over
instant messaging, which last saw market leader America Online fend off a
similar challenge from Microsoft Corp.

WorldNet, one of the largest Internet service providers, said it would let
its 1.8 million subscribers send instant messages, or text transmitted
immediately across the Internet to friends and contacts, to users of AOL's
messaging product.
