.Mac currently uses the AIM protocol, and MSN uses the MSN protocol. They are incompatible.
When everyone is using XMPP/Jabber you'll be able to do it, but the big incumbents have shown no interest in doing this yet, so it's at least 5 years down the road.iMac Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2006 12:36 PM (in response to Electroholic)I actually run my MSN and Yahoo through iChat. It's not too difficult. Do a Google search for MSN and Yahoo Jabber transports. Basically you run your MSN and Yahoo through a jabber server.MacBook 2Ghz Core Duo, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
