You'll have to use the terminal/command line and follow these steps:

From the terminal (command line) convert the plist file to xml with the following command:

Next edit the file with TextEdit by running this from the terminal:
open -e ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iChat.plist

Finally convert the plist file back to binary format with the following command:
plutil -convert binary1 ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iChat.plist
Open Messages and test...
