When setting up my iChat account I accidentally spelled my username wrong. I cannot figure out how to change it. I even tried deleting iChat all together and it will not let me. It comes up with a box to type in my password, but nothing about updating my username.

 

Thank you.

    Hi,

     

    Delete the Account/Screen Name in iChat Menu > Preferences >Accounts (Use the Minus Buton)

    Use the Plus Button and add the account again with correct spelling.
