    Question How do I use iChat? (Jag)
    I have already opened the application before and attempted to use it but that attempt was in vain, and it scared me off from using iChat.

    I guess the question here really should be:
    How do I correct what I have already entered into iChat; and
    How do I use iChat?

    I have tried using Mac Help, but I did not find anything useful that could help me out.

    Any information on how I go about removing my first attempt at using iChat and then entering in my profile would be great.

    You log onto iChat using an AOL/AIM sn or your .mac name.
    There are no profiles in iChat so you can't add that

    I have now signed in, I think, with my .mac name but the system is so different from that to MSN I have no idea how to use it. To make matters worse I have no idea whether I am online.

    This may seem strange considering I can get to this website, but I am connecting through my University's proxy server. I think I have setup the correct things in preferences but I am not sure.

    So I may or may not be online with my account, and I may or may not be talking to someone. >_<

    You can tell if you are online by the status thingy below your username. If you are online it will be a Green Circle and say online.....if you are offline it will say offline

    :confused: I have honestly no idea where that is. The only thing that I have when I go to File/New Chat With Person is a grey window with another smaller grey window sticking out of the left hand side.

    Press the Apple key + 1 to make your buddy list appear which is where you will see your buddies names and your status

    As soon as the buddy list popped up this came up as well:
    AOL Instant Messenger is disabled You must enable the service to display the list

    Should I enable this? Or press cancel?

    You'll probably want to enable it, so that you'll be able to see your buddies. Oh and I hope you do know that you don't have to use a .mac account, you can just use ur old AIM account.

    After enabling the list I discovered that I am not connected to the internet. This is most likely due to the proxy server. Yet the strange thing is that with my PC MSN worked yet Mac MSN does not.

    I think I can't handle yet another new IM for I am way beyond 13 :p

    The AIM option does not exist I am afraid so its a .mac account for me.
