Have used iChat/iMessage across my iPhone, iPad and iMac seamlessly.  Syncing has been fine, no matter the device  Text is still ok.  No problem there.  In the last couple days, pictures/attachments are not displaying on my iMac/iMessage panels.  Text is ok.   iPhone & iPad at 100% with both text and pictures. Was flawless until a few days ago...re OS 10.8.3 UD?   thoughts?  thank you

iMessage/iChat, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    HI,

     

    For some the FileTransferAgent responsible for iMessages sendings tends to "get Stuck".

    By this I mean if you open Activity Monitor then the IMFileTranferAgent item appears (it should only flash up and disappear as soon as the file/pic leaves your end)

     

    You may also find the File Transfer Window (See Window Menu) lists the file or pic in some sort of "waiting" or failed state.

    iMessages ones often say there is "no Put container"

     

    Highlight the item in Activity Monitor if it shows up and use the Quit Button and confirm a Force Quit.

    You may find this releases a whole host of pics you have tried sending or coverts them in the Transfer window to being properly "Failed"

     

    There is a separate URLFileTRasferAgent that is for AIM and Jabber File Transfers.

     

    I have not worked out why either of them "hang" in Activity Monitor or any other causal effect.
