so i just got my macbook a couple weeks ago, and this is my first thread ..(so please excuse my lack of Mac-knowledge )

so on my Accounts, i created a .mac username, and then assumed that THAT username would be my iChat username ...but when i try to sign on to iChat it always says:

"Could not connect to Jabber ... Disconnected unexpectedly"

any help/advice would be greatly appreciated

Cheers!

To use iChat you need to have an AIM or AOL screen name and use that. Not sure of any others.

The .mac account is a domain you can use through apple to sync up all your apple products. In order to use Ichat you must already have a username and password through aol instant messenger.

If you don't have one you can create one for free: http://download.aim.com/client/68

Use not abuse the rep system!
