hey there, I keep getting the following error from my ichat; "Ichat can't communicate with google talk account Gmail." Not sure why I am getting this. My ichat has worked fine in the past. Anyone have any idea what's going on? I've already gone into settings and deleted the ichat account and re-installed it. that didn't work...


please and thank you!

    Did you change the password at Google and forget to do it in iChat ?


    Is Talk still Enabled at your Google Account Settings ?


    In re-adding the account you ar using the "right"  ending (@gmail.com or @googlemail.com) ?


    Try deleting com.apple.ichat.Jabber.com


    You will need to do this in the Finder

    Use the Go Menu.

    Hold th ALT key and select th Library

    Open Preferences

    Find the .plist and Drag to Trash

    Restart iChat.
