Ive been searching on the net for 2 days in a row hours and hours and decided to place the question here.


Since updating to Mountain Lion iMessage doesn't recognize my Apple ID anymore, it was working good on the beta.

When i try to login it says Apple ID and/or Password incorrect. It works fine on the store and iCloud.


I've tried changing the DNS to, did the keychain tricks with deleting the acounts and resetting, tried booting in Safe mode, tried killing the agent in activity monitor and tried deleting the all the iMessage/Agent/iChat files in the preferences directory. I also re installed the Mountain lion update, no go.


I tried everything on every topic i could find.


Also iMessage isnt working on my iPhone either anymore, it does send to my phone number but not to my Apple ID email anymore, when i try to login with apple id it says it cannot connect as well.


Since it isnt working on my iphone and my macbook, i reckon it has something to do with my Apple ID, but i find it weird that it just happened after the update. Ive been using this ID for 3.5 years withouth problems, it's also verifeid.


Anyone help?



Thanks in advance



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)
