Hi there!

Most of my friends and I are on Mac OS 10.5.4 and iChat 4.0.5.
We're all UK based and use GoogleTalk accounts when signing in and we can't seem to be able to send files to each other. It usually just hangs on the sender's part and the would be receiver isn't notified at all. Text/Audio/Video/Screen sharing all work well just not the file sharing.
I scoured the net before posting and I came across this on another forum

I want to know if this is true. If it isn't, is there a solution?

Thank you for your time in advance!
