Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2011 10:33 PM (in response to chrisd86)I am having the exact same problem!
When I was on iChat in the afternoon, it worked fine. I went to school, came back, logged onto iChat, and this happens.
Buddy list completely erased, and when clicking the add button to add someone, it wouldn't work.
I have a window open when I log on, cause I usually chat to my girl. I tried messaging her, and I got an error saying, : The message "hello" could not be delivered. Your privacy preferences are set so they prevent you from communicating with this person.
That's just complete bull, cause I checked my settings, and everyone can IM me! I don't get whats wrong. Does anyone have a solution?iMac 21.5'
Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2011 11:09 PM (in response to chrisd86)Figured it out.
Just click on iChat, and Log out of (username), and than log back in. It restored it like that.iMac 21.5'

Welcome to the Discussions
You may find that in iChat > Preferences > Accounts > Security tab that all your Buddies are either in the Block List or that Allow Specific People is active but no-one is in that list.
It may also pay to Set the Account not to Allow Multiple Logins.
This may generate a AIMSysMessage (Buddy Name) suggesting you type a 1 as a response to Log Out any other login.
This should formerly "Close" the Work Login and give you access again.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 28, 2011 9:49 PM (in response to chrisd86)I too am having exactly the same problem. I have tried:-
- logging out and back in;
- removing the account and re-adding it;
- restarting iChat;
- restarting my laptop;
Nothing has worked so far at all. All my contacts (only a hundred or so) are gone. They were there yesterday and I think the only thing I have done is upgrade to 10.6.7.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 11:36 AM (in response to David Hargreave)Hi,
Do you see the Buddy List at all ?
Does it say Jabber or the Description you gave it in th Accounts part of the Preferences ?
(If it a Bonjour Window and there are no other Macs it will be blank).
Is it marked in the Account section of Preferences to "Use this Account" ?
And to Automatically log in at iChat launch ?
What are the setting in use in the Security tab of accounts if this is an account that logs in to AIM ? (you will not have this tab for Jabber/Google accounts)
10.6.7 did not update iChat itself.
