How could I reset my iChat Password, and what is that ID about? Is it an Apple ID or what?

    Several Apple Issued IDs can be AIM valid Screen Names.

    These include names issued under the.Mac service or later as a "iChat name" during the MobileMe era.


    However the Passwords  have to be 16 characters or less to work with the AIM servers.


    Start here and the Manage Account link.


    iCloud issues names will not work in iChat 5 or earlier
